Terence Davies, creator of Distant Voices, Still Lives; The Long Day Closes, and other tremulous narratives about growing up gay and smitten with Hollywood in Liverpool, England, offers this broken-hearted valentine to his hometown: the "years wasted in useless prayers" at church, the ornate and decaying public buildings, the docks and factories, the working-class row-house neighborhoods, England’s "fossil monarchy," and "the British genius for creating the dismal." It’s a grand example of documentary tone poem, written, directed, and narrated in a shaky voice by Davies (74 min.).
