Arriving in London in search of fame, fortune, and more cultural stimulation than Essex could provide, beautiful but naive Jim finds himself jobless, penniless and renting a cardboard box from a homeless man. Jim catches the eyes of The Raconteurs, a troupe of high-class male escorts specialising in cultural, post-coital conversation. Jims got the looks, he's got the charm, but to reach his true potential he must learn absolutely everything about art There's just one problem; when Jim sees a real masterpiece he is overwhelmed, he faints. Undeterred, Jim takes the neon drenched streets of Soho by storm, attaining the ultimate in objectification - he becomes a muse. Paul, a mysterious figure from the Raconteurs' past spots potential in Jim's art affliction. His ability to immediately determine genuine art from fake is a precious commodity, just waiting to be exploited.
Look Back in Time
- Postcards from London review by KW
Curious piece of cinema looking back at a period of time I can remember but looked at it from the periphery as I had yet to move to London on a permanent basis. Selected items I could relate too, but other parts were to me a work of fiction, as I had no idea if they were based on reality. Watchable but I had difficulties getting to grips with the life etc of the lead players!
