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.

Ozus' World Movie Reviews

It is very sensually done, emphasizing the artist's gargantuan appetites for bisexual and, especially, homosexual affairs with his models.

Calling Derek Jarman's Caravaggio the director's most-accessible film is deceptive, even while being true.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

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.
