First Jarman flick for me. Really an uncompromising artist, he was. kokogogo wrote a nice summary. I'll add that the Classics kids should watch this one to see how elegant a modern approach to Greek chorus can be done.

Also, fans of John Waters would do well to watch this.

Though weighed down by much of the typical late-70s-proto-orgiastic scenes reminiscent of films like "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" this is actually somewhat of a revelation.

Punks come for the assault of senses and grandiose gestures, the revolutionary sentiments. Hermetic kids'll be there too, to see John Dee take Elizabeth I (guided by the angel Ariel, in a black leotard) on the trippiest of trips into a future dripping every color of the rainbow onto dry cement.

Adam Ant falls around a lot and gets roughed up by cops. A cop gets blown up. Some rock stars trade their souls for exposure and others die by asphyxia. And we see that it might as well be any other time, in any other country.
