A trio of short films – Children, Madonna and Child and Death and Transfiguration – by the gifted Liverpudlian, examining the life of an alienated bachelor and the tension between his homosexuality and Catholic beliefs. Painful but occasionally brilliant low budget autobiographical trilogy which bears direct comparison to the Scottish Bill Douglas Trilogy.
