Children / Madonna and Child / Death and Transfiguration
These three early films, subsequently assembled as a single work, tell of the melancholy life and death of the director's alter ego, Robert Tucker, growing up an artist and a homosexual in postwar working-class Liverpool. Bold use of music and an acute visual sense prefigure Davies' later works, with sustained passages of brilliance.
Sacred and profane and profound, The Terence Davies Trilogy contains one masterpiece that anticipates the great work to come from one of cinema's most overlooked artists.
