Homage to Julian Metcalf

Here's a short film I made with my brother Tom of one of the poems in The Corner of Arundel Lane and Charles Street.

It is about a disgraceful cad called Julian Metcalf. He is fictional - no reference to any real person, living or dead, is intended.

It is mildly offensive so please don't click play if you are a child or likely to take offence.

Tony -

What an utter joy to discover this after a dull morning and even more tedious afternoon. I particularly enjoyed it around the 1.23 mark - reminded me slightly of that country bumpkin Jesse from the Fast Show, though in fairness that may just be because you're exiting a shed. In any case, a fantastic poem I think, both in print and performance.

cheers, B

Thanks Ben! The shed was a particularly enjoyable scene to film, mainly because it involved pushing the door open and shouting.

Wow. Very cool. I'd like to meet this bête noir of women’s groups! Excellent film and it's great to see you have a collection out with Salt as well!
