Format: DVD
Derek Jarman's 1977 film Jubilee, said to be the "first official punk film" is one of the most original and disturbing urban dystopias to emerge from that era of British film-making. Setting itself in a version of late 70s London where anarchy reigns and Judge Dredd-style police are as lawless as the gangs on the street, the film never fails to surprise and Punk rock experts can play a game of spot-the-cameo. Whilst all this takes place, there's also the matter of Queen Elizabeth I, brought forward in time by the angel Arial to gain supreme knowledge...
Violent and twisted, Jubille manages, however, to convince that destruction isn't the only aspect of an anarchic society, and questions the meaning meaning of life, love, history and even the violence itself in a world without balance.
The only extra on the disc is a 40 minute BBC Face-to-Face documentary with Derek Jarman, which, although interesting, does not tackle the subject of this film, which is a shame as some background on the film would have been very interesting. Even so, a curio that belongs in many peoples collections.

Don't watch this expecting an exposition of punk, or a linear movie with a happy ending.

Jubilee catalogues the dying of a country's soul. That may sound dramatic, but it is an artist's distopian vision of the future - or 'no future'- as one reviewer has deftly pointed out, two years before Thatcher got into power. Yet it goes beyond the political; it's about the brutalisation of people, the breaking down of civilisation. Jarman's classical art background comes through in all his work and this is no exception. It's not an easy film to watch, not simply because of the extreme nature of some of the scenes, but because it's message is both intellegent and sad. The soundtrack is a mixture of punk and sublime Eno.

It could also be, for some, a nostalgic look at a post-war England/Britain that has since disappeared - teapots, horn rimmed NHS specs and HP Sauce greasy spoon cafes. 1977 was grim -thank god for Derek Jarman and artists like him, whose mirror will reflect into the 21st century. Watch this film as art with something to say. Don't expect to come out smiling.

"she wouldn't even carry a gun."

Warned off at the time about this film I snuck with friends to watch it at Essex Uni in Colchester where they had a not so secret showing. This was in 1978 and I was transfixed with the violence, the sheer hatred, the squats and the decadence. I missed some of the nuance transfixed by the Early Ants, Banshees and Chelsea.
I was beguiled by the hatred because I wanted to be which was the antithesis of the film's apparent message. Jarman was a snob of high taste aesthetics. To me this represented the alternative to the whacks and commands of the school system, another variation of "If". This was part of the ultimate one finger fightback as my reading of the film went.

Watching it 30 years later and I am split down the middle. It captures the squats, the madness, the middle class vitriol and the decay of the UK. The dialogue a cross between philsosphy and cliche. The film 30 years later failed to move me, although I was also captivated by nostalgia. It just seems so middlebrown angst laden; ladles of it.

Seeing Toyah, Adam et al, is a giggle as they became icons of the era for joining in with the moneyed elite; the commercial sell outs. This filmic stance was all just a pose, like watching adolescents pull each others hair at a school disco. As Thatchler took the reins of the state, she drove the war chariot harder and faster than the fearsome women depicted in this film. These feral amazons and spartans hitched a ride on her entrails. Adam was in a royal variety performance within 5 years of making this film. Toyah went on to make mock gothic artefacts for people who missed out on punk. They became the caricatures mocked within the dialogue with no apparent psychological unease at the volte face.

A great film from the punk era. The mayhem, chaos and disrespect is highlighted extremely well. Well worth a watch if only to see some of the stars of today who must be cringing at their appearance in the film. Buy it !!

I remember recording this film when it was first shown in the early days of Channel 4. I was really taken by the story and the whole decadent nature of the world Jarman had created. I had never really seen anything as violent and risque as that on tv before and its imagery has always stuck with me. It was weird seeing a very tom boy Toyah in it too and an equally young Adam Ant. Years later the film popped into my head again and a quick Amazon search revealed that it was available on dvd. I bought a copy for myself and another as a present for my girlfriend of the time as we are still in contact and I thought she would like to see it again too.

The film is very dated and the acting is not brilliant in places but that doesn't matter. That is all part of the overall style of the film imo. I loved this film when I was growing up and it was great to see it again. A real nostalgia trip but not necessarily for everyone's taste, hence 4 stars.
