Ray Davies of the Kinks, well-respected as one of rock's best storytellers, makes his film-making debut as director, writer and composer of RETURN TO WATERLOO. This hour-long feature is a unique approach to the synthesis of music, video and cinema. The haunting songs, unavailable on any Kinks album, take renowned actor KEN COLLEY on a suspenseful journey through his imagination as he confronts reality and fantasy, love and violence.
This film, a cult classic, is a watershed event in the development of the music video art form, as it was created for itself rather than to promote a record; not a concert, not a grouping of promo videos, this is a real movie, and an impressive directorial debut.
COME DANCING WITH THE KINKS: The Kinks have been anything but "predictable" throughout their more than two decades together. The international hits included here range from their first Top 10 hit YOU REALLY GOT ME through the more recent DO IT AGAIN. The songs and their clever, evocative videos explore themes familiar to all Kinks' fans: paranoia, nostalgia, sexual and societal confusion and the Everyman.
