Description: Patrick Keiller, who left behind a career as an architect to pursue filmmaking, directed this documentary about the sad state of British housing, which ponders how a nation responsible for some of Europe's most cutting-edge technology could allow itself to have such a rapidly decaying infrastructure. As narrator, Tilda Swinton assumes the character of a researcher and designer, who returns to the United Kingdom after two decades away from Europe and discovers that none of the innovations in housing and modular building technology introduced in the 1960s have come into current use; she also finds that most British citizens live in overcrowded flats that have fallen into massive disrepair. The Dilapidated Dwelling was shown in competition at the 2000 Vancouver Film Festival.~ Mark Deming, All Movie Guide
