Derek Jarman • United Kingdom • 1993 • Jarman's final, most daring statement.
In his final—and most daring—cinematic statement, Jarman the romantic meets Jarman the iconoclast in a lush soundscape pulsing against a purely blue screen. Laying bare his physical and spiritual state, Jarman narrates about his life, his struggle with AIDS, and his encroaching blindness. By turns poignant, amusing, poetic and philosophical, Blue premiered at Telluride, Rotterdam, and Stockholm, where it won an Honorable Mention.
