Of Time and the City (Terence Davies, UK, 2008)

  • The Star

“Part-scrapbook, part-confessional, Davies’s odyssey through his past is garlanded with irreverent aphorisms. This is a film to be cherished.” - Wendy Ide, The Times

Documentary footage is combined with poetry and prose to create a film that is both an ambiguous love-song to Terence Davies’s hometown of Liverpool as well as an intimate autobiographical portrait of the artist (who provides the distinctive voice-over). Beautiful, poignant and beguiling, Of Time and the City is impossible to categorise.
