Terence Davies returns with yet another grand cinematic achievement. 'Of Time and the City' is a eulogy to native Liverpool, entering its empty, poverty-struck streets and businesses, roaming around the allies and backstreets, with a gentle splash of contemporary Liverpudlian society along the way, this film is just essential.
It's more than a documentary feature; it's a groundbreaking and heart-shattering portrait of one of Britain's most important cities.
The film, soundtrack, narration and interviews are all just blissful.
Its short (lasting just 72 minutes), tender, nostalgic and just brilliant.
It's not going to suit all tastes, but avid film fans will be impressed and satisfied.
