No, mo?e przesadzam z ocen?, ale w zwi?zku z dziesi?tkami dla filmu o Mistrzu Kiczu (Beksi?skim) uwa?am, ?e tu tym bardziej nie ma si? co hamowa?. :P
Filled with Jarman's signature stylistic flourishes (period idiosyncrasies, minimalist production design, plenty of gratuitous nudity) and compellingly low-key, Caravaggio is a artfully-made meditation on the nature of the artist and how they draw inspiration from their own lived experiences.
Some post-modern stuff, with Sean Bean, Tilda Swinton, Dexter Fletcher in their rookie years.
Quite an amazing display of bad teeth!
A few good visuals, but that's all. I don't even know what this movie was intending to do...
It being written up as an art film with a fictional, disjointed narrative, I thought I may well have been in for some pretty rubbish. Thankfully, I was not. Yes, there's not much of a 'story' in the traditional sense, but you get a real feeling for Caravaggio's work and outlook. It's beautifully shot- all shadows and light, just like the master's paintings and the actors do a good job with the story. As you'd expect, there's elements of satire, surreal anachronistic touches and the whole thing is thoroughly eccentric. But it works. You get a sense of Caravaggio the man, even if it's unclear how much of this is Jarman's interpretation of this. In the end, it doesn't really matter. It's a visual treat and no struggle to watch at all.
The love triangle at the center of Jarman's Caravaggio is a little too stately and soapy to leave much of an impression. But the scene where he visits the pope is a profane delight.
I Apprecciate CARAVAGGIO,so that's a film to watch !!
It was beautifully shot and lit. Jarman really brought to life the lighting of Caravaggio's paintings where the black of the shadows seeps into the bright reds and the peach pallor of human skin as if it was starting to swallow all whole. Nevertheless, it was a film where I couldn't really understand what the hell was going on. There were just numerous, bizarre scenes that did not seem related to one another.
