Drawing on his latest book, Ayoade on Top, the author takes us on a journey from Peckham to Paris by way of Nevada and other places we don’t care about.
Along the way we encounter unforgettable and forgettable characters, descend into madness and ascend to the sublime summit of a film that celebrates capitalism in all its victimless glory.
