Glitterbox
A collection of 4 films by director Derek Jarman, whose "lush, experimental reflections on art, politics, sexuality and identity transcend and subvert ... the period costume drama, the biopic--as well as the boundaries of so-called gay filmmaking"--Container. The angelic conversation: Ethereal super-8 meĢlange of homoerotic love, layered with languorous music by Coil and emotive readings of Shakespeare sonnets by Judi Dench. Caravaggio: The volatile life of the 17th-century painter re-imagined through his brilliant near-blasphemous paintings and flirtations with the Roman underworld. Wittgenstein: "Portrait of the irreverent 20th-century philosopher who preferred detective fiction and Carmen Miranda musicals to Aristotle"--Container.

Jubilee a film /
"When Queen Elizabeth I asks her court alchemist to show her England in the future, she's transported 400 years to a post-apocalyptic wasteland of roving girl gangs, an all-powerful media mogul, fascistic police, scattered filth, and twisted sex."--Container back.
DVD 1985
Sebastiane
Describes the last few days of the life of the Catholic martyr St. Sebastian, in particular his relationship with the Emperor Diocletian in 303 A.D., his banishment to a remote outpost of the Roman Empire because of his Christian sympathies, the ambiguous relation with his commanding officer, Severus, and finally his execution by his fellow soldiers.
DVD 7482
Tempest

It tells the story of Prospero, the magician, who lives with his nubile daughter on an enchanted island and punishes his enemies when they are shipwrecked there. It's a study of sexual and political power in the guise of a fairy tale.
DVD 7483
