The Long Day Closes, February 22
Gillian Anderson plays a woman destroyed by social expectations in Davies's powerful adaptation of Edith Wharton's novel. “Davies's sense of the material is closer to a Mizoguchi geisha drama than Masterpiece Theatre.”-Village Voice
Discussion with Terence Davies. Davies leads us through his film in what promises to be a transfixing trip down memory lane.
Terence Davies in Person. John Kennedy Toole's novel, set in a small Southern town, is transformed through Davies's sensibility into “a cinema of raw feelings and incandescent moments.”-Chicago Reader. With Gena Rowlands.
Terence Davies in Person. Depicting a cinephilic childhood in 1950s England, Davies paints a world of music, shadows, and light. “A marriage of individual and collective memory consecrated by the movies.”-Village Voice
Terence Davies in Person. Davies mines family memories, both painful and bittersweet, for an elliptical, luminous, and moving portrait of a working-class life in mid-century Liverpool. “Terence Davies's mesmerizing memory film becomes its own kind of poetry: taut, referential, inward, brilliant.”-L.A. Times
Terence Davies in Person. Introduced by David Thomson. Three short films entwine into a devastating portrayal of the impact of religion, family, and sexual torment on the life of a man much like Davies himself. “Lacerating but ecstatic in tone.”-David Thomson
