The Dark Film finds Farley pursuing many of his staple themes – childhood, history, technology, landscapes and, of course, the cinema of the title poem's "unrated dark" – in a looser, more supple style. Yet with it comes a more cautious tone. Occasionally The Dark Film indulges in the sort of tired laments for objects past that Farley's earlier poems, delivered with more inspired flair, avoided. But this hardly detracts from a captivating book that sees this energetic poet putting his livewire imagination to ever more ambitious use, all in an adaptable style that – like the elemental force of "In the Wind" – "stills us, or slows us down to thought".

Seeing things – in every sense – is Paul Farley's subject

Seeing things – in every sense – is Paul Farley's subject. Even darkness becomes visible if you stay with it, as the title poem testifies. A film of "Unrated dark, two hours long" develops character through small flaws: . pair of tracks cut by a bad/ projector somewhere on the road/ from Soho leaves them mesmerised. Farley's poetry starts with – and stops at – nothing. The beguiling "Quality Street" is a child's-eye view through a rainbow of sweet papers, individually held up to the light: "The wrapper of a strawberry cream/ unpeels a vivid.

The Dark Film, Paul Farley's first collection since the highly acclaimed Tramp in Flames, expands the poet's research into `the art of seeing', and all that humans project of themselves into the world. Farley's great poetic gift is his ability to switch between the local and the universal, the present and the historical past, with the most apparently effortless of gear changes; he brings to our immediate attention things previously hidden - whether out of sight, in the periphery of our vision, or right under our noses. The Dark Film is a profound meditation on time, on the untold stories of our history, and on the act of human beholding - as well as Farley's most richly entertaining and rewarding collection to date.
