Caravaggio (1986)

Directed by Derek Jarman
My rating: 2 stars out of 4

Italian Renaissance painter Michelangelo de Caravaggio cavorts with his models, both male and female, while courting the financial support of a Catholic cardinal. Scenes are often strikingly posed to reflect the original paintings by Caravaggio, but unfortunately there is little in the way of plot or structure otherwise. The result is a harried, unfocused glimpse of the decadent life of a tortured artist.
