Terence Davies has made some of the most innovative, harrowing, and hauntingly lyrical films of the contemporary era. This first ever book-length study of his work combines detailed analysis of all his films with a persuasive and stimulating investigation of key filmic issues of time and memory, identity and selfhood, and the nature of literary adaptation, as well as a previously unpublished interview with Davies himself. The book demonstrates that Davies's films successfully subvert traditional division between "popular" culture and "art-house" cinema. Gardner explores not only Davies's debt to social realism, the British Documentary movement, and Ealing comedies, but equally to the European auteur tradition and to the great Hollywood musicals and melodramas that continue to inspire him. It provides fresh insight into the centrality of music in Davies's work, and into his conviction that film itself is closer to music than to any other art form.
