Wittgenstein | Chicago Reader


72 minutes 1993

This Brechtian biopic (1993) by the English filmmaker Derek Jarman about Ludwig Wittgenstein encompasses everything from the philosopher's pampered childhood to his friendships with Bertrand Russell and John Maynard Keynes and his relationships with rough young men. This is quite probably the best of Jarman's narrative features, presented in a series of spare but powerful tableaux—beautifully and thoughtfully designed, like Joseph Cornell boxes with black backgrounds. With Karl Johnson, Michael Gough, and Tilda Swinton.
