5.0 out of 5 stars caravaggio, 19 Mar 2011
This review is from: Caravaggio [1986] [DVD] (DVD)
Like some of the other reviewers I found this film confusing at first but I put it aside, read the reviews and came back to it later. Unlike a purely factual documentary the film takes you into the world of the characters so that you can feel what it is like for them. There is no need to think too much about what it means or whether it is factually correct. One clue to the mix of 20th century artefacts lies with the chap typing in the bath who bemoans the debauchery as a sign of the time, so that we can see that this does not change and it does not matter when the story is set. As a work of art and an understanding of what it may have been like to be Caravaggio or his associates the film is first class.
