Liner Notes:

Ray Davies
Return To Waterloo

For more than 20 years Ray Davies has been the leading force behind one of rock's most intelligent and successful bands. Now the leader of the Kinks makes his directorial debut with a ground-breaking and highly acclaimed film. Return to Waterloo is an insightful and witty portrayal of the modern world, as seen through the eyes of a "well-respected man" as he attempts to confront reality and fantasy, love and violence. "The Traveller" is played by veteran British actor Ken Colley ("The Empire Strikes Back," "Monty Python's Life of Brian").

The suspenseful storyline is driven by a brilliantly haunting original soundtrack. Ray Davies has always reflected the vision of an entire generation. In Return to Waterloo he captures the emotional turmoil of the 1980's through a unique synthesis of music and drama.

Starring Ken Colley as "The Traveler". With Dominique Barnes and Tim Roth.

"Delightfully twisted." -Rolling Stone

"A precursor of the movie musical of the future." -Wall Street Journal

"An unusually assured directorial debut." -Playboy

"Very moving and very, very disturbing... I've never seen a movie quite like it." -Martin Scorsese
