Lights in the Dusk's rating of the film Death and Transfiguration

Davies' first masterpiece and the first significant development of his signature approach. Here, a series of deathbed recollections allow the filmmaker to move freely between moments of past and present, creating a vague and elliptical structure that's akin to entering into a terrifying hall of mirrors, where every action and interaction is distorted until it becomes a mocking reminder of a life without cheer.
