British film critic Christopher Petit hooked up with German director Wim Wenders and came up with his first feature film, an allegorical mystery that explores the stifling apathy in modern-day Britain. Though Wenders is credited only as the associate producer, his influence is still very
much apparent. David Beames is an emotionally dead disc jockey, slowly enticed into investigating the mysterious circumstances of his brother's death. Though the premise of RADIO ON is interesting, its pace is extremely slow. Not even the background music provided by David Bowie, Kraftwerk, Devo,
Sting, and others generates much interest.
