Summary
  • A collection of 4 films by director Derek Jarman, whose "lush, experimental reflections on art, politics, sexuality and identity transcend and subvert ... the period costume drama, the biopic--as well as the boundaries of so-called gay filmmaking"--Container
  • The angelic conversation: Ethereal super-8 mélange of homoerotic love, layered with languorous music by Coil and emotive readings of Shakespeare sonnets by Judi Dench
  • Caravaggio: The volatile life of the 17th-century painter re-imagined through his brilliant near-blasphemous paintings and flirtations with the Roman underworld
  • Wittgenstein: "Portrait of the irreverent 20th-century philosopher who preferred detective fiction and Carmen Miranda musicals to Aristotle"--Container
  • Blue: Over a blue screen, Derek Jarman lays bare his physical and spiritual state in a narration about his life, his struggle with AIDS, and his encroaching sightlessness
