Derek Jarman United Kingdom, 1993

msmichel's rating of the film Wittgenstein

'Philosophy is a sickness of the mind' . Jarman's final feature, save the experimental 'Blue', is a daring imagining of black dropped tableaus tracing the philosopher's friendships, loves and work. Economical in budget but rich in colour and costume the film never ceases to engage and fascinate. Sandy Powell's costumes for Tilda are exquisite. First viewing since '93 festival date this evening.
