Like an audiovisual fresco of the modern city – in this case, London – Sit and Watch adopts the form of “channel-hopping” revolving around different emblematic situations: parliamentary sessions, a guided boat tour, surveillance videos for a bus, a couple exhibiting their sexual frolics on the internet, a religious meeting and a boxing club. A portrait is thus drawn, through these various scenarios, of a world that stages itself, over-mediatised and dystopian, in which the individual strives in vain to find their place. Making the most of the serial effect of a device inspired by the small screen(s), this is a film that reflects, through delicate touches and with great skill, a society of spectacle which, between rhyme and irony, chooses the headlong rush, through politics and the media. A film that is as enjoyable as it is anxiety inducing, anchored in a resolutely contemporary discourse.
