Rejecting the idea of another fictional film, Davies decided on a documentary, in the style of Humphrey Jennings's LISTEN TO BRITAIN (1942). Unsurprisingly, Davies took an even more singular approach. OF TIME AND THE CITY is both a first person historical essay and a visual poem. Combining archival and newsreel footage, it is layered with Davies's intimate voiceover of readings from Eliot, Dickinson, and Chekhov, personal recollections, and his carefully curated musical accents. It is both warm and biting; a melancholy (farewell) love letter, which is also, like so much of Davies's work, very funny." –Joanna Di Mattia, SENSES OF CINEMA http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=349139 Anthology Film Archives Anthology Film Archives
