More of an aesthetic object than a movie, this 78-minute study by British filmmaker Derek Jarman (Sebastiane, The Tempest) consists of stop-printed Super-8 images of two handsome young men climbing rocks, lugging burdens, and swimming blown up to 35-millimeter, where the exaggerated graininess makes them almost abstract. Meanwhile, selected Shakespearean sonnets are read in voice-over by actress Judi Dench, and the result is a sort of extremely rarefied pornography.
