The much-praised film-maker returns with a characteristic collage of music, archive image and personal voice-over to reflect on the Liverpool of his youth, the 50's and 60's. Both an outward and a personal history, Davies' film is iconoclastic; as he surveys changes in his native city he even finds a moment to excoriate the Beatles. A few have found cliché and pomposity here. But most have been entranced, like the five-star reviewers for both Guardian and Independent.
