Reviews

Derek Jarman, die aanvankelijk schilderde, ontwikkelde zich als filmmaker tot de voorloper van de Engelse 'Romantic Aesthetics'. Zijn homo-erotische films werkten de woede van het Thatcherregime. Tot aan zijn dood in 1994 als gevolg van AIDS heeft hij de Engelse hypocrisie rond homoseksualiteit aangevallen. The Angelic conversation (1985) is een filmische interpretatie van vier sonnetten van Shakespeare met erotische, dromerige beelden van jonge mannen. De teksten, gelezen door Judi Dench, worden teruggebracht naar hun 16e eeuwse homoseksuele oorsprong. De stijl is tot stand gebracht door super 8 film over te zetten naar video en vervolgens weer op te blazen naar 35 mm film.
