Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Stewing in Rome's underbelly during the late Italian Renaissance, Michelangelo da Caravaggio was plucked from the streets by the Catholic Church to paint austere Biblical exaltations. Derek Jarman masterfully captures not only his rampant flirtations with Roman counterculture, but also beautifully saturates this film with the same delicate attention to the chiaroscuro techniques the painter so expertly crafted. Starring 2007 Best Supporting Actress Oscar winner Tilda Swinton (Michael Clayton, The Chronicles of Narnia) in her debut film role, Sean Bean (Lord of the Rings), and Nigel Terry (Excalibur) in the title role, Caravaggio is a lush re-imagining of the volatile life of the 17th-century painter and his brilliant, nearly blasphemous paintings.

- Video interviews with actress Tilda Swinton, actor Nigel Terry and production designer Christopher Hobbs

Review

"Spectacular, painterly camerawork. The mood is much like that of Caravaggio's paintings--brooding, sensual, pagan in the extreme." --Newsweek

"Flashes of ingenuity and visual brilliance. A pleasure to look at!" --The New York Times

"[Jarman's] long-gestated, deeply personal biopic of the complex, unaccomodated homosexual painter, is his masterpiece." --The Guardian (UK)
