Example text

The various truths of the film now being out, and Canterbury looming in the distance, all is prepared for a final confrontation. This takes place when the three amateur detectives and Colpeper leave Chillingbourne for the city. Like a pilgrim making her way to the shrine of the martyr Thomas à Becket (the film makes the analogy possible without ever stating it directly), Alison is going to the garage where she has stored the caravan, the venerated relic of her summer on the Pilgrim’s Way. Bob plans to meet another American soldier at the cathedral; Peter will attend a soldiers’ service there before shipping out.

Colpeper chats with Bob Johnson too, and when the American and the land girl confer later they realize that certain clues they have noticed—a hastily closed blackout curtain, a Home Guard uniform hanging in the closet—hint strongly that Colpeper is the Glueman. ) Predictably, Alison and Bob decide to make a few inquiries into the goings-on at Chillingbourne, and in this effort they are joined the next day by the English sergeant Peter Gibbs. ) Over the course of the August weekend, Alison talks to other victims of the attacks.

In a montage of intellectual London activities—this is an homage to Woody Allen as montagiste of Manhattan—Sammy speaks of going to special bookstores to buy novels written by women, of attending plays at the Royal Court if they have been well reviewed by the Guardian, or sitting in on evening seminars on semiotics. Some of this intellectual activity may be satirized in the film (Sammy is ironic as he voices the montage), but it is undeniably a part of Kureishi’s overall conception, referred to constantly in the dialogue and made visible in the furnishings of the mise-en-scène.
