Derek Jarman United Kingdom, 1993

Richmond Hill's rating of the film Wittgenstein

Rather playful musings on the life & work of LW. The shoestring budget is double edged: essential economy makes for some creative cut-corners and neat summations, but becomes visually trapped filmed in front of a black cyclorama. In all, a credit to what can be achieved with so little, but rather too skewed in its pellet sized philosophy to be anything more than a quirky diversion (but does it need be anything else?)
