Terence Davies

Wendy Everett

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

Arguing that Terence Davies's films successfully subvert the traditional division between 'popular' culture and 'art-house cinema, this book 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 explores the notion that film itself is closer to music than to any other art form.
