Derek Jarman Collection DVD


Academy Award winner Tilda Swinton personally conducts an intimate
cinematic commemoration of the life, times, and work of UK filmmaker,
artist, and renegade Derek Jarman in Derek.

Isaac Julien’s (Young Soul Rebels, Looking for Langston) documentary
blends together vintage clips from Jarman’s groundbreaking experimental
theatrical works and 8mm films, never-before-seen footage from the sets of
his Queer Cinema milestone Sebastiane and punk film landmark Jubilee, and
revealing interview footage shot shortly before Jarman’s death in 1994. In
his own words and the words of those who knew him best, Derek reveals
Jarman’s religion-scarred beginnings and his ascent in the vibrant UK
counterculture of the 60s and the London punk scene of the 70s. Also
covered, his eight film collaboration with muse, companion and collaborator
Tilda Swinton, the influential music videos made with The Smiths and The Pet
Shop Boys, and Jarman’s contributions to a British art scene he helped to

Both a “heartbreaking and giddily alive biopic” and an “accomplished
homage” (Art Forum), Isaac Julien’s Derek is a joyful requiem celebrating
Derek Jarman’s life, vision and legacy with the same maverick energy and
affectionate creativity that made its subject one of the most important
artistic mirrors of his time.

Jarman presents Shakespeare’s intricate comedy of magic and revenge in a form that is at once faithful to the spirit of the play and a dazzling spectacle mixing Hollywood high camp and gothic horror. His film recalls the innocent homoeroticism of Pasolini’s versions of the classics while its lush sense of decor and color is worthy of Minnelli.

Derek Jarman’s feature film debut is a historical drama which lays bare the latent homoeroticism that has always lurked beneath the glossy surface of Hollywood biblical epics, audaciously spoken in Latin and supported by one of Brian Eno’s best music scores.
