Aside from bad filmmaking, I don't know what any of this means.
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.
Although Postcards from London ultimately doesn't quite live up to its considerable ambitions, it offers plenty of arresting moments along the way.
[It] may not make for a particularly involving narrative experience. But it sure is nice to look at.
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.
Pretty but hollow, "Postcards From London" isn't quite clever enough to get away with being this deeply frivolous.
Art and sex-but way too much of the former-are featured in a whimsical but retrograde gay concoction.
Intense, seductive and organically strung together, the motion picture discusses all about art and opportunity in a postmodern era filled with kitsch and the superfluous mores of a self-aggrandizing society.
Witty and visually dynamic...Postcards from London unfolds as a series of clever tableaus.
The film may divide audiences with its heightened approach and controversial plot. But it's worth hanging on for the ride, because the film has a lot to say.
