In Minute 115 of The Whole Shebang, Jenny and Mike say goodbye to the actual action of the film with a thought about a Victorian and English Gothic aesthetic as captured by Americans like Todd Haynes and Terry Gilliam, Jenny talks about being a “third culture kid” and Mike talks about British creators who aren’t able to go the other way, how this film is ultimately just a snapshot of a very rarefied pantheon and how an entire story is happening outside the narrow frame of the film, and as we look at a montage of schoolkids looking up, a bunch of umbrellas in motion on the London pavement, and a candlelit pub during the miners’ strikes in 1974, we take a moment to do a last-minute Marxist analysis of the film as a whole and a look at the social, political, and cultural impact of the transistor radio.
