Critics reviews

Geoffrey Unsworth’s on-location cinematography captures the backstreets of Merseyside with an inevitable grimness, and yet, when our protagonist first snakes through them, the musical score shifts into a rosier, almost patriotic slant. Indeed, there’s something reassuringly communal about those scenes in bars and clubs, in bingo halls and wrestling halls, as ordinary working folk engage in liquor, songs and fisticuffs.
