Return to Waterloo Directed by Ray Davies

Critics reviews

[Davies] does occasionally drop into the film amateurish sequences that literally act out the lyrics on screen as those lyrics are being sung. And ultimately, that’s what’s one of the most fascinating aspects of Return to Waterloo, in how Davies seamlessly transitions to the role of director and shapes his artistry for a new format. The film is a work that never comes off as an outlier in an esteemed career, but merely another piece that fits snugly into Davies’s canon.
