Reel Streets: The Offence!
Here's a remarkable post on British film location site Reel Streets, focusing on one of my fave flicks, Sidney Lumet's The Offence (1972).
Lumet made much of the deeply weird spaces of Bracknell, Berkshire's post-war 'new town', and the effect of the photographs is to make the place seem both more and less real.
Not least because there's no people in them, nor even any cars on the roads.
