The Blue Lamp

A single violent act (one that has been aesthetically normalized in and by film) shakes up London, after which we follow every step of the investigation. This is almost documentarian in its meticulous portrayal of policework, but not one without humanity. You see, the act happens halfway in, after 40 minutes of almost uneventful strolls at night and choir practices. 40 minutes to get to know everyone in this world, before the cogs start turning. There’s no weightlesness here. Actions do have consequences.
