Derek Jarman, Caravaggio (1986) 90mins, colour, sound, UK

Part biopic and part homage, Derek Jarman’s Caravaggio turns to the life of Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio (1571-1610) for source material and as a font of aesthetic inspiration: incorporating details of the director’s own life into a script toying with themes of blasphemy, violence, homosexuality, languor, and the relationship between film and painting. Jarman’s identification with the most influential painter of the Italian Baroque extends into questions of form. The film deploys Caravaggio’s distinctive chiaroscuro (light and dark) as a principle of cinematic lighting, and experiments with reconstruction by animating the style, mood and composition of the artist’s most famous paintings into tableaux that hover expressively between stillness and motion.
