Tuesday’s Overlooked Films: Derek Jarman’s Caravaggio

What can I say? One of my favourite painters in all the world (and I repeat unending thanks to Alessandra for taking me around to see the Caravaggios in the little churches of Rome). A glorious young Tilda Swinton plus Nigel Terry looking rough, Sean Bean, Robbie Coltrane, Michael Gough. Jarman’s eye captures it all with a brilliant palette that mimics Caravaggio’s earthy voluptuousness. Get the film. Watch it.
