DEREK JARMAN b JANUARY 31 1942
DIED FEBRUARY 19 1994
his film, caravaggio(1986), is one of the most haunting & beautiful meditations of mourning & loss ever created. i remember reading in his journals his assertion that "you're not a man until you've been penetrated" & i've always thought that was exactly correct. & who would have ever thought of making a film about wittgenstein? that it mostly succeeded just proves what a genius in one form of art can accomplish when engaging a genius of another.
where ever you are, peace be with you.
