Caravaggio

by Leo Bersani, Ulysse Dutoit
     
 

Caravaggio (1986) is probably the closest Derek Jarman came to a mainstream film. Nevertheless, the film reflects Jarman's major concerns: violence; history; homosexuality, and the relation between film and painting. Unlike Jarman's other work it avoids sentimentalizing gay relationships.
