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.
