Movie Info

Two years before director Derek Jarman died of AIDS, he directed this extremely ambitious variation on Christopher Marlowe's 16th-century play. While Marlowe is the root of this film, Jarman has taken a great deal of leeway with the manner of presentation. The story revolves around King Edward's open homosexuality, which eventually led to his murder and succession. Instead of lush historical settings, the film uses bare walls and dirt floors and puts the cast into smart suits. This "staginess"

Jarman's adaptation of Christopher Marlowe's [play] still resonates, but more from its depiction of power-at-any-cost than bold representation of homosexual love and culture.

Bares its anger at the ongoing repressive and homophobic nature of the Thatcher British government.

I hate that when there are no critics reviews listed, that Flixster just gives it a critical rating of 100%. How annoying! Basically, this movie is a mess that is probably better on stage but a mess moviewise.
