The Neon Bible

The Neon Bible ★★★½

Lovely down to the bones, with rich, saturated colors and perfect cinematography. This is the first movie I’ve seen directed by Terence Davies, and I’m curious to see what I make of the ones centered on his home, Liverpool. The Southern byways of this story may be a little too far for him to find emotional connection, or that may just be his style.

There’s still something special about the autobiographical dialogue between Davies and John Kennedy Toole, separated by miles and decades. 

Also: yes, the guy from Letterkenny.
