The mythological past and bleak future converge on the sparse grey streets of London in this cult classic of the punk era. Director Derek Jarman doesn’t spare the shocks, while electrifying punk rock numbers are delivered by Jayne County and Adam Ant. Special features include new interviews with punk icon Jordan (who appeared in the film), Jarman’s friend and collaborator Lee Drysdale, and more.
In Jubilee, Queen Elizabeth I and her occult aide Dr John Dee (brilliantly played by Jenny Runacre and Richard O’Brien respectively) travel into the future, encountering the megalomania of big business as well as gangs of violent, marauding killers.
Released on Blu-ray for the first time, this presentation is a 2K remaster from the original camera negatives.
