Caravaggio (1986)

Probably the most easily watchable Jarman movie so far.  Though it definitely has something of the dream like texture of Angelic Conversation , it gives you more a ‘film with a plot’ experience.

Characters inside world is left unrevealed, and so are many parts of the plot, which are left open for..

Documentary about Chinese monks living alone high in the mountains and sharing their Buddhist wisdom with the travelling Canadian bearded guy.
