Sunset Song (Davies, 2015)

Sunset Song

Despite certain narrative issues, Sunset Song is yet another gorgeously realized Davies film boasting exceptional cinematography, a lyrical pace, and some of his best lighting to date. It has been underrated by critics choosing to compare it to Distant Voices, Still Lives, which is a fair perspective, but judged on its own merits, Sunset Song is a great film, even if, admittedly, lesser Davies.

83/100 – Great.
