Illuminating collection of images
28 August 2004 | by (Brighton, England) – See all my reviews

Whilst this film will not appeal to everybody, it is however, an illuminating and moving evocation of a generation, through the camera of artist and filmmaker Derek Jarman. I am a fan of Jarman, and so found Glitterbug - 20 years of edited together super-8mm footage - a fascinating watch.

Brian Eno's music accompaniment is sympathetic to the tones and ideas being provoked by the images. The footage continues Jarman's tradition of film-making found in his features - fascination with the male body, nature, landscapes, cityscapes, close up of detail, personal expression and camera experimentation. A fascinating film for anyone interested in the life of this great filmmaker.
