Caravaggio (1986, U.K.)
93 min. 16mm. Directed by Derek Jarman. Hosted by Amy Bloch, Department of Art and Art History.
As this film reveals the 17th-century painter’s complex life—his brilliant, nearly blasphemous paintings and flirtations with the underworld—it is also a complex and lucid treatment of Jarman’s major concerns: violence, history, homosexuality, and the relationship between film and painting. “Brooding, sensual…a bold, quirky Caravaggio in pagan and poetic glory.”—Newsweek
