Synopsis:
'He has other reputations as well - as an academic, as a maker of curious artefacts, as a cataloguer of the bizarre and as a librarian of the absurd'.
Greenaway might well have been describing himself in this thumbnail sketch of Canton Remodell, a character in an unmade project. Before 'The Draughtsman's Contract' Greenaway had made a series of highly inventive films which established all the obsessions that run through his later work. In Vertical Features Remake (1978), a playful parody of avant-garde theorising, academics argue about the work of Tulse Luper, Greenaway's best-known fictional character.
The Falls (1980) is divided into 92 biographies of people who have all been affected by the 'VUE', the Violent Unknown Event, a phenomenon in some way connected with birds and flying. Michael Nyman provided the score for both films.
