EDWARD II
Jarman | 1991 | UK | 90m
“Born in Flames:
New Queer Cinema”
4:30, 9:15 at BAM

“Derek Jarman’s fiery Edward II is erotic, political, visually arresting, experimental in the most provocative sense, and unforgettable. [Though] few films of recent years offer its intellectual and artistic sweep, it also connects on a deep emotional level, [culminating in] a heartrending scene of the king forced to send the man he loves into exile, with the Eurythmics’ Annie Lennox standing behind them anachronistically singing Cole Porter’s “Ev’ry Time We Say Goodbye”: it sounds ridiculous, but Jarman not only makes it work, he creates one of the most emotionally overpowering scenes I know… Now seems not only Jarman’s greatest work but one of the best films of the 90s.”
Jim Clark, Jim’s Reviews
