In his final—and most daring—cinematic statement, Derek Jarman the romantic meets Jarman the iconoclast in a lush soundscape pulsing against a purely blue screen. Laying bare his physical and spiritual state in a narration about his life, his struggle with AIDS, and his encroaching blindness, Jarman creates one of the most heart-wrenching artistic statements ever put on film, a by turns poignant, amusing, poetic, and philosophical farewell to life by an artist confronting his own mortality.
