TERENCE DAVIES. Michael Koresky. University of Illinois Press, Champaign, 2014. Contemporary Film Directors. 22 x 15 cm. ISBN 9780252080210 In English.
This title is offered as a special-order item. Hardcover edition also available; see Worldwide 162063. Publisher's description: Called the most important British filmmaker of his generation, Terence Davies made his reputation with modern classics like Distant Voices, Still Lives and The Long Day Closes, personal works exploring his fractured childhood in Liverpool. His idiosyncratic and unorthodox narrative films defy easy categorization; though they would seem to exist within the realms of realism and personal memory cinema, the films lay bare the director's personal pain in a daringly abstract way. Film critic Michael Koresky explores the unique emotional tenor of Davies' work by focusing on four paradoxes within the director's oeuvre: films that are autobiographical yet fictional; melancholy yet elating; conservative in tone and theme yet radically constructed; and obsessed with the passing of time yet frozen in time and space.
