DEREK JARMAN'S SEBASTIANE,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sebastiane [DVD] (DVD)
Set in a Roman military outpost, the sun baked landscape and the sea creates an atmosphere in which the men form physical and sexual bonds. Their passionate relationships are full of male humour, obsession, romance and violence. At the centre of this whirlwind is the Captain of the guard, Severus, unable to articulate his sexuality, who is determined to make the young Christian soldier, Sebastian love him despite the young man's continual rejection.
The versions available on DVD have oddly used a cropped version not showing a hardon for their releases. Whether be deliberate (the DVD has an 18 certificate) or just sheer laziness and ignorance about the film's original screen ratio, it is so.
Sad to say, the definitive version has yet to make it to DVD. A future release deserves an original ratio, high definition restoration because this is a cult movie

The German DVD released in 2009 has an uncensored transfer, so that's the DVD to go with. http://www.amazon.de/dp/B001NWSGXW/
