Wittgenstein

Directed by Derek Jarman, Part I: Ideal and Ideas

Part of Commemorating Derek Jarman

“Stridently experimental.” —New York Times

Aesthetically terse yet theatrically exuberant, this portrait of 20th-century philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein confronts the public reception of ideas. A collaboration with political theorist Terry Eagleton, the film features an ensemble of Jarman players at its most minimal: Karl Johnson, Tilda Swinton, Michael Gough, and the young Clancy Chassay. 1993, DCP, 72 minutes.
