Synopsis

Jarman once more offers his own unique perspective on Britain, this time a dark and gloomy take on the effects of Thatcherism on society. With Tilda Swinton.

Our take

Derek Jarman’s masterpiece is a meditation on British society under Thatcher. Shot in a dreamlike combination of Super 8mm and video, this is an aggressive rejection of the values of populist cinema at the time, and one of Jarman’s finest works.
