Derek Jarman United Kingdom, 1991

Sneerwell's rating of the film Edward II

A pure marvel. Enjoyed every single shot of it, full of Jarman's trademark anachronisms, Tilda Swinton's gorgeous looks and a bewitching combination of passion and the frenzy of despair that burns the characters out. [The final scene with little Edward dancing on a cage is oh so poignantly beautiful]
