Images from Anthony Friedman's new brutalist reworking of Melville's Bartleby in 1970 ("I'd prefer not to..." etc.) Lovely film, and a lovely unreleased score by Roger Webb. John McEnery's Bartleby spends a lot of time wandering around the concrete maze of London, buoyed up by a lazy drum break that gets chopped up and reworked in various patterns. Very simple and flutey and melancholy. Here's my homemade copy of the soundtrack.
