The Angelic Conversation

The most artistically minded viewers might get something out of this Derek Jarman experiment, but even that’s a long shot. A man makes a spiritual journey to cleanse himself before finding love, all of it filmed in black and white and slow motion while  reads Shakespearean sonnets over the soundtrack. Dench is a most welcome voice for the Bard’s work, but as a feature film this is a bit of a wearing method of storytelling. Jarman is, as usual, an uncompromising filmmaker, but this time his work is as alienating as it is admirable.
