Our next Rialto Recommends is THE LONG DAY CLOSES the 1992 film from Terence Davies. THE LONG DAY CLOSES is the most gloriously cinematic expression of the unique sensibility of Terence Davies, widely celebrated as Britain's greatest living filmmaker. Suffused with both enchantment and melancholy, this autobiographical film takes on the perspective of a quiet, lonely boy growing up in Liverpool in the 1950s. But rather than employ a straightforward narrative, Davies jumps in and out of time, swoops into fantasies and fears, summons memories and dreams. A singular filmic tapestry, THE LONG DAY CLOSES is an evocative, movie- and music-besotted portrait of the artist as a young man. The Boston Globe raved "Sensuous and rarefied, elevating its particulars into epiphanies, The Long Day Closes is as joyful as introversion gets." While the New York Times called THE LONG DAY CLOSES "A deeply personal film, and at times a touching one, it is a collection of fragments and memories artfully pieced into a quirky, captivating book of dreams." The Hollywood Reporter wrote "The Long Day Closes is impressive in many ways. It may be a strange filmgoing experience, but its haunting imagery and sounds make it powerfully memorable." THE LONG DAY CLOSES is streaming exclusively on the Criterion Channel. It is worth checking out for the quiet, contemplative experience that it is HERE.
