    Much of the joy of the film is to be found in the way Jarman and his team recreate the look and color of the original paintings.

    In a sense, Caravaggio has less to do with its ostensible subject than with Jarman's own insistence on sensual, and largely homoerotic, expression, though there's a feeling of stifling enclosure to the images Jarman invents, of eros turned inward, toward private fantasy and longing, rather than outward to a world of real possibility.

    Less a movie than an act of vandalism.
