5.0 out of 5 stars Breathtaking cinema, 16 May 2009
By 
Magpie (Birmingham, UK) - See all my reviews
This review is from: The Terence Davies Trilogy [1976] [DVD] (DVD)
I first saw the film on Channel Four many years ago and it stayed in my psyche from then on. I read the book as well and again the story affected me deeply.

This film isn't easy watching at all, it's raw, painful, upsetting, depressing but yet ultimately uplifting too. It is not going to win any awards for furthering the cause of Gay Pride - it paints too bleak a picture of homosexuality (all sexuality?) for that. What it does do however is lay before us the life of one man and the consequences of choice denied, decisions made; later regreted and a life lived in fear.

The film is highly critical of organised religion and Catholicism in particular - anyone who knows anything about Terence Davies will understand that.

Buy this film and watch it with an open mind and be so grateful that you have more options and opportunities than the poor soul featured. Incidentally, Wilfred Brambell's performance in the last part of the trilogy is brilliant.
