Derek Jarman’s Wittgenstein

This is an odd but fascinating movie. Derek Jarman was often self indulgent as a film maker, but he innovated, and some of what he did was great. He directed the seminal punk movie, Jubilee, many of the Smiths’ pop promos and a beautifully filmed portrait of the painter Caravaggio. The self indulgent stuff included the simultaneously hyper camp and mind numbingly dull Sebastiane, which was entirely in Latin.

Wittgenstein is an interesting subject, being one of the few philosophers that wasn’t entirely self indulgent.

    I’ve been looking for this movie for a while and I’m glad it’s surviving somewhere. Interesting (bizarre) filmmaking. I enjoyed it on the whole, but for what it’s worth, I was a big Wittgenstein fan to begin with.
