Composed by John Lewis and Brian Hodgson
Directed by Derek Jarman

Jarman presents Shakespeare's intricate comedy of magic and revenge in a form that is at once faithful to the spirit of the play and a dazzling spectacle mixing Hollywood high camp and gothic horror. His film recalls the innocent homoeroticism of Pasolini's versions of the classics while its lush sense of decor and color is worthy of Minnelli.
