Terence Davies Retrospective
March 15–27, 2012 at
, New York
Arguably the greatest living British director, Terence Davies distinctive, noncommercial style has kept him from prolificacy, with only seven films in his filmography. On the occasion of his latest film, The Deep Blue Sea, BAMcinématek celebrates another treasure from the most Proustian of filmmakers. Often shunning conventional plot structures in favor of delicately constructed, wittily composed collages of images and music that cut right to the heart of his story's emotional core, Davies' work is a deeply personal exploration of memory, time, internal and external repression, childhood, religion, and alienation. The New York Times has called the effect of Davies' films "one of muted rapture, a swelling ecstasy held in check by a constant tug of sadness."
Terence Davies' The Long Day Closes opens for a week-long run at Film Forum starting Wednesday, March 28, 2012.
