Movie madness

A fascinating link here about Hollywood London – those inconsequential locations that make no sense to Londoners who know their neighbourhood well. If you’ve ever been amused by how many characters seem to go out of their way to cross Tower Bridge, you’ll enjoy this.

Islington locations are film characters in themselves; Chapel Market played Peckham in Only Fools & Horses, while the Farmiloe Building in St John Street appears as part of Gotham City in Batman Begins.

Meanwhile one of my favourite films, Truly Madly Deeply, which I thought was a wholly London affair, turns out to be partly filmed in Bristol…. Is nothing sacred?
