About this item
A 4-DVD Box set of films by and about Derek Jarman. Includes the acclaimed 2008 documentary by Isaac Julien presented at Sundance and Berlin Film Festivals. "Sebastiane": Jarman made his feature directorial debut with this interpretation of the life of St. Sebastiane. The Roman martyr is exiled to an all-male colony and tortured in this visually stylish and gorgeously photographed film. "Sebastiane" caused a stir for its frank homoerotic content, but was equally noteworthy for presenting its dialogue entirely in Latin. Music by Brian Eno. "The Tempest": 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. "War Requiem": British cinema's enfant terrible teams with his muse Tilda Swinton and Laurence Olivier, for a spectacular and moving interpretation of composer Benjamin Britten's 1961 orchestral masterpiece. "Derek": Written and narrated by Academy Award(R) winner Tilda Swinton, this documentary blends vintage clips from Jarman's groundbreaking experimental works, never-before-seen footage from his films, and candid interviews shot shortly before his death in 1994.
