David Knight - 27th Mar 2012

He's best known for his work in animation - in particular his promos for King Creosote and Jon Hopkins - but Elliot Dear has made a very assured and distinctive venture into live action for Francois and the Atlas Mountains' City Kiss.

Deep in snowy London, Francois is lost between a band performance and a trip out on the Docklands Railway in search of a girl, while in the grip of a nasty bout of narcolepsy. Elliot creates an inspired dreamworld around the singer - including an Inception-style sequence on a train. Very good indeed.
