THE GIRL CHEWING GUM BY JOHN SMITH, 1976.

"In relinquishing the more subtle use of voice-over in television documentary, the film draws attention to the control and directional function of that practice: imposing, judging, creating an imaginary scene from a visual trace.  This ‘Big Brother’ is not only looking at you but ordering you about as the viewer’s identification shifts from the people in the street to the camera eye overlooking the scene. The resultant voyeurism takes on an uncanny aspect as the blandness of the scene (shot in black and white on a grey day in Hackney) contrasts with the near ‘magical’ control identified with the voice.  The most surprising effect is the ease with which representation and description turn into phantasm through the determining power of language."   

Michael Maziere, ‘Undercut’ magazine 1984
