Movie Info

Postcards from London tells the story of beautiful teenager Jim (Harris Dickinson of Beach Rats, The Darkest Minds), who finds himself in Soho where he falls in with The Raconteurs - a gang of unusual high class male escorts who specialize in post-coital conversation. From shy novice to sought after escort and eventually artist's muse, Jim would be the toast of the town if it wasn't for his annoying affliction. He suffers from Stendahl Syndrome, a rare condition which causes him to hallucinate and faint when he counters real works of art. But when Jim is roped into the world of detecting art forgery, could his condition bring about his downfall?

Critic Reviews for Postcards From London

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (7)

Despite a skillful use of color, lighting, framing and music, the movie's artificiality might have played in a short film but becomes tedious and pretentious when stretched to 90 minutes.

Aside from bad filmmaking, I don't know what any of this means.

Top Critic

McLean's nostalgia for the Soho of Francis Bacon, Freud, and Jarman (all of them clear influences on his own work) is touchingly wistful about the ravages of time, and he's serious about probing the mixed blessings of sex, art, beauty and authenticity.

Top Critic

Although Postcards from London ultimately doesn't quite live up to its considerable ambitions, it offers plenty of arresting moments along the way.

November 8, 2018 | Full Review…

[It] may not make for a particularly involving narrative experience. But it sure is nice to look at.

November 8, 2018 | Full Review…

But self-consciousness is not the same thing as self-awareness. And in a movie overflowing with the former and lacking in the latter, Jim primarily becomes an inadvertent symbol of narcissism and superficiality.
