About this item
Painter, poet, activist and queer cinema maverick, Derek Jarman (1942-1994) is one of Britain's most visionary and extraordinary film artists. Often in collaboration with actress and muse Tilda Swinton (2007 Oscar(R) Winner for "Michael Clayton"), Jarman's lush, experimental reflections on art, politics, sexuality and identity transcend and subvert both the genres in which he worked - the period costume drama, the biopic - as well as the boundaries of so-called gay filmmaking. This four-disc set boasts two of Jarman's most accomplished arthouse features ("Caravaggio" and "Wittgenstein"), and two of his most personal and avant-garde work ("Blue" and "The Angelic Conversation"). "Glitterbox" also debuts a treasure trove of additional material including the posthumously assembled 54-minute film collage "Glitterbug"; rare behind-the-scenes footage; extensive video and audio interviews; production galleries; and a 20-page illustrated booklet with essays, an interview with Oscar(R)-winning costume designer Sandy Powell and a tribute by Peter Christopherson, of cult band Coil.
