Jarman’s provocative account of the punk movement is both prophetic and apocalyptic. Queen Elizabeth I and her occult aide Dr John Dee travel into the future, encountering the megalomania of big business, as well as gangs of violent, marauding killers. Jarman – hitting his stride here - doesn’t spare the shocks, while electrifying punk rock numbers are abrasively delivered by Jayne County and Adam Ant.
