The Small World of Sammy Lee is released on Blu-ray on 14 November

If you don't like this film, you have no soul.

I don't have blu-ray Ray...I mean Billy.

I regard this as not just one of the best British films of the 60s, but one of the best of any period. It's got it all - themes, cinematograpy, music..it's ahead of its time on so many levels.
The thing about cult films is most of 'em you love for very personal reasons, but you're aware in a broader context they're a bit shoddy and amateurish or just too out there or whatever. TSWOSL is different though, I just think it's a brilliant film in its own right. In the same way that you might recommend Taxi Driver or The Third Man , TSWOSL has those kind of qualities and can hold its own on that level.
It's a classic as far as I'm concerned and really deserves to be recognised as such. I'm happy to keep going on about it until more rediscover it, because they surely must!

I'm mean he did a decent job for Liverpool back in the day, but a film or documentary about him? Bit much.
