Derek Jarman: Life As Art 2004
70 mins United Kingdom Director. Andy Kimpton-nye
"Understand that your morality is not law," said Derek Jarman. A good maxim for a filmmaker whose life and work is explored in this loving documentary. Avant-garde in method but nostalgic in temperament, he's remembered by family and friends like Tilda Swinton and Nigel Terry. Excellent use of Super 8 blends with revelatory stories, not least his wish to cast Terry-Thomas as Ariel in The Tempest!
