Derek Jarman Großbritannien, 1990

Richmond Hill's rating of the film The Garden

Generally affecting, if occasionally heavy handed, parabolic tapestry around themes of homosexual persecution and guilt. The sequences of light – more personal moments as Jarman tends his own garden – are more finely judged than the more ponderous allusions to Gethsemane, original sin, etc. Possibly the best of Jarman’s latter-day montage films, although not a conclusive whole.
