I may be a dull fellow, but from the very beginning of Caravaggio, I hadn't the slightest idea as to what Jarman was up to.
Famed for its fabulously evocative recreation of the light/shade luminosity of Caravaggio's oil paintings, Caravaggio is nevertheless something of a victim of its times....But despite that, it is a wonderfully bold work, simply irresistible to look at
Remarkably true to Caravaggio's visual aesthetic while expanding Jarman's own repertoire of tones and ideas.
Calling Derek Jarman's Caravaggio the director's most-accessible film is deceptive, even while being true.
Marrying a painterly aesthetic with a defiantly homosexual sensibility, this ironic biopic is probably the most accessible film of avant-garde British director Derek Jarman.
