5.0 out of 5 stars Unique and Beautiful, 15 April 2003
This review is from: Wittgenstein [VHS] (VHS Tape)
this is a film that no description of mine can do justice to...it is not really a biography of his life, more an interpretation of his life, ideas, personality through the mind and eye of Jarman. It is one of those rare works of art that is impossible to shake off for all the right reasons...the beauty of light on faces, the exraordinary look in Karl Johnsons eyes, the sight of a Green dwarf Alien discussing epistamology with a small boy sitting on a red post-box...and it manages to be one of the least pretentious things I have ever seen. (and forgive me if my review makes it sound like some art-school rubish, it is too firmly grounded, too filled with smiles to be that).
This really is one of the great works of art in cinema and one of the great works of individuality I have yet come across.
It ties with Mirror by Tarkovsky on my most watched and most loved film pile....
