Caravaggio (1986) (15)

The McCarthy ē 93 mins ē Film

A retelling of the life of the celebrated 17th-century painter through his brilliant, nearly blasphemous paintings


Derek Jarman struggled for seven years to bring his portrait of the 17th century Italian artist Michelangelo da Caravaggio to the screen. The result was well worth the wait. Itís a freely dramatised portrait which conjures several of the controversial artistís most famous paintings through elaborate and beautifully photographed tableaux vivants, and boasts wonderful performances from Nigel Terry, Sean Bean, and, in her first role, Tilda Swinton.
