Spencer Leigh in Caravaggio


1986 NR

Avant-garde filmmaker Derek Jarman imagines the life of Italian Baroque painter Caravaggio in this award-winning drama. As Caravaggio's health fades, he reflects on his life, art, loves and the tragic twists of fate that led to murder. When Caravaggio asks young couple Lena and Ranuccio to model, a bisexual love triangle develops and unbridled passions lead to the painter's final years on the run.
