This chapter presents an interview that took place at Terence Davies's home in Mistley, Essex, on October 16, 2012. Topics discussed include the influence of T. S. Eliot's The Four Quartets; whether Davies has finally found his own language after years of making movies; the reasons why he continues to make movies despite his belief that cinema is a potentially a dying form and the fact that he no longer enjoys watching movies; the reasons why some of films are in black-and-white; his views about his alter ego character Robert Tucker in the Trilogy; his views on realism; and the importance of telling a narrative in a nonstraightforward way.

Keywords:   interviews, Terence Davies, filmmakers, filmmaking, British film directors
