Richard Ayoade – in this foren, perhaps one of the most ‘insubstantial’ people of our age, takes us on a journey from Peckham to Paris by way of Nevada and other places we don’t care about. It’s a journey deep within, in a way that’s respectful and non-invasive; a journey for which we will all pay a heavy price, even if you’ve waited for the smaller paperback edition.
Ayoade argues for the canonisation of this brutal masterpiece, a film that celebrates capitalism in all its victimless glory; one we might imagine Donald Trump himself half-watching on his private jet’s gold-plated flat screen while his other puffy eye scans the cabin for fresh, young prey.”
‘If the narrative delights of 2003 romcom View From The Top had until now escaped you, comic multi-hyphenate Ayoade offers a forensic close reading of the unloved box office flop starring pre-Goop Gwyneth Paltrow as a lovesick flight attendant. The film, of course, is terrible- the humour droll and discreetly acidic.’
