Editorial Reviews

Product Description

"If I post this letter to New York, does that strengthen my conviction that the world exists?" Hilariously irreverent and delightfully unconventional, Derek Jarman's last narrative film explores the personal and philosophical dilemmas of one of the most influential minds of the 20th century, Ludwig Wittgenstein. Convinced he had solved all the problems of philosophy with his first published work at the age of 32, he later became plagued by doubt and questioned everything--most of all the relevance of philosophy itself. With a unique lighting and stage design, Wittgenstein is a kaleidoscope of crisp, vibrant colors and inky blacks, beautifully rendered in a new restored transfer. Jarman's legendary sense of humor and generous spirit shine through in this cheeky, touching and highly original portrait of a revolutionary thinker who preferred detective fiction and Carmen Miranda musicals to Aristotle.

SPECIAL FEATURES:
- Restored anamorphic transfer, created from Hi-Def elements
- Video interviews with actress Tilda Swinton (Chronicles of Narnia), actor Karl Johnson and producer Tariq Ali
- Extensive behind-the-scenes footage
- Video introduction by film historian Ian Christie
- The Clearing (Alex Bistikas, 1994), a short film featuring Derek Jarman
- English subtitles for the deaf and hearing impaired
- Liner notes by film critic/producer Colin MacCabe

Review

"Its structure is so cleverly surreal it makes Fellini look like Ron Howard!" --Entertainment Weekly

"A unique biographical text quite unlike any other film biographies.... Staged with wit and humor." --The Austin Chronicle

"The film is like a Noel Coward revue, replete with droll dialogue, ostrich plumes dancing to piano accompaniment, and verbal sparring with a Martian--a remarkably entertaining portrait." --The Philadelphia Inquirer
