Rest in peace, Terence Davies. 🎞️

The first film I saw of his was his relatively recent documentary about Liverpool, *Of Time & the City*—a film of great beauty, full of profound reflection on memory & how profoundly the world has changed since the 1960s.

Here’s a quotation that reflects his sensibility, from the NYT obituary linked above:

“The first thing that goes is subtlety. The first thing that goes is any kind of restraint or even wit sometimes. I don’t know how to deal with that in the modern world.”
