Product Description:

British auteur and experimentalist extraordinaire Derek Jarman pledged allegiance to the avant-garde; every detail of the artist's rich, inventive oeuvre subverts and surmounts the visual and textual standards of commercial cinema. GLITTERBOX brings together four of Jarman's most renowned creations: THE ANGELIC CONVERSATION, CARAVAGGIO, WITTGENSTEIN, and autobiographical feature BLUE. Please see individual titles for detailed synopsis information.

Description by Zeitgeist Films Ltd.:

"Shelf Talk" from Video Business:
"Jarman has a substantial following of cinephiles who have enjoyed his work for more than 30 years and will undoubtedly be happy to know that a remastered group of his films is being made available. A new documentary on Jarman, Derek by Isaac Julien, had its premiere at Sundance several months back and will be playing across the country this summer, bringing more mainstream press to Jarman than he has probably ever received. And don't underestimate the draw of recent Oscar-winner [Tilda] Swinton, whose enthusiastic and intelligent contributions to the supplements are required viewing. The Glitterbox itself is a gorgeously designed piece-an Yves Klein blue box housing four discs and a full-color booklet filled with essays and stills. Bravo to Zeitgeist for presenting the work of this unique artist with style and grace."
"With four films new to DVD and a fantastic batch of extras compiled with love, Glitterbox not only shows Jarman's love for art and film, but it also shows the love he inspired in others." -DVD Talk
"A commendable collection of a maverick's final films." -Slant Magazine
"All of the films get fine transfers on this set, and it's an amazing conglomeration of art and the avant garde.... Zeitgeist Films provides the set with a handsome package which includes a fold out cardboard pack in electric blue, and a booklet which includes written essays on the artist and his work." -DVD Verdict
"Sure to be one of the best releases of the year." -Huffington Post
"The release of [Glitterbox] could not come at a better time.... infinitely watchable.... Jarman and this lovely set of films should receive the highest of praise." -DVD Corner
"A handsome collection." -The Advocate

"Glitterbox is a lovingly assembled and meaningful tribute to [Jarman's] work." -San Antonio Express-News
