Derek Jarmans brilliant portrait of the great Renaissance painter
Derek Jarman struggled for seven years to bring his portrait of the great Renaissance pointer Michelangelo Caravaggio to the scree, producing a critically acclaimed masterwork and powerful meditation on sexuality, criminality and art.

Told in flashback as the artist (Nigel Terry) lies dying in poverty, the film brilliantly recreates the look and colour of Caravaggios original paintings while exploring the homoerotic subtext of his work. Speculating on the artists relationship with his model Ranuccio (Sean Bean), the film explores a vicious love triangle also involving the models wife, played brilliantly by Tilda Swinton Jarmans muse and collaborator throughout several films, this was Swintons first feature role. With luscious production design it was the first major film production for award-winning costume designer Sandy Powell the dazzling Caravaggio is arguably the most accessible of Jarmans films.
