Sure. It combines three of his initial shorts -- Children, Madonna and Child, and Death and Transfiguration - he made between 1976 and 1983, and needfully so since they (almost painfully) bleed into one another. (The actual reason however had much to do with foreign distribution.) Like the remarkable Distant Voices, Still Lives (now available on DVD in the U.K.) and The Long Day Closes, which I think you should get a hold of as soon as possible, they're highly autobiographical works that are set in a working-class Liverpool district. The shorts chart his alter ego's physical, emotional, spirtitual struggles in the three stages of his life. Films like these have a tendency to be self-contained, but here Davies is alternately subtle and ferocious in expanding his fractured narrative and overbearing themes involving sickness, family, homosexuality, religion, death. The visuals are starkly black-and white, and Davies is comparatively less married to tableau vivants. As you can gather, this ain't feel good stuff. The two adaptations, The Neon Bible and The House of Mirth, are the only other films he's released so far. His latest, Of Time and the City, which I believe is a documentary, will play at Cannes next month.
