Off topic in terms of oscars, but relevant as there is a Derek Jarman retrospective at the BFI going at the moment, I just watched one of Jarman's last film "Blue" and what a masterpiece.

The IMDB synopsis explains the film perfectly with "Against a plain, unchanging blue screen, a densely interwoven soundtrack of voices, sound effects and music attempt to convey a portrait of Derek Jarman's experiences with AIDS, both literally and allegorically, together with an exploration of the meanings associated with the colour blue."

I am speechless as to how to describe the intensity of this truly tour de force of a film.

I've seen one Derek Jarman (Jubilee) film, but I found mesmerizing. Netflix has some of his films. Also, Tilda Swinton appears to have been a muse of his (she starred in several of his films).

It's such a fresh approach to the documentary genre, and the result is inspiring.
No I have not yet seen it, but it's on my watch list. I've read a little on it, so I know the premise and so on. I have to see it!


Razzer I've seen a few of his films. Queer Edward ii, was one I think, and Jubliee too. Don't think i've ever seen Blue. The BFI is great; loved visiting it when I was in the UK last spring.
