Synopsis:
A courageous personal testimony about his experiences with AIDS, 'Blue' is Derek Jarman's most radical and daring film and was hailed as a masterpiece when it premiered at the Venice Biennale. A blue screen provides the canvas for the visions of the audience, conjured up from the evocative words and music of the remarkably rich soundtrack by Simon Fisher-Turner.

Derek Jarman's most personal film - Blue review by ER

Spoiler Alert
15/04/2021

If you have read Derek Jarman's diaries Modern Nature and Smiling in Slow Motion, Blue is an even richer experience. In the director's words small memories are read out by himself and a small collection of actors against the backdrop of a never-changing blue screen. Nigel Terry, John Quentin, and Tilda Swinton round out the 'readers'. It's a touching, sad and all-too-human documentary and as such is Jarman's masterpiece. Not for everyone, but if you've heard of it, seek it out.
