British films

Anti-Clock is a visually complex, verbally pretentious meditation on the connections between time and behavoir, including a few seconds of clinically recorded sexual activity that seems oddly out of place. The screenplay positively bristles with portentous philosophical pronouncements, most of which sound more silly than sage. But in its best passages, the images build up a sturdy momentum, and it's good to see so "experimental" a feature on the commercial circuit for a change. Jane Arden and Jack Bond are the filmmakers.
