Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"I may be a dull fellow, but from the very beginning of Caravaggio, I hadn't the slightest idea as to what Jarman was up to."
‑ Paul Attanasio, Washington Post
"Calling Derek Jarman's Caravaggio the director's most-accessible film is deceptive, even while being true."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"Famed for its fabulously evocative recreation of the light/shade luminosity of Caravaggio's oil paintings, Caravaggio is nevertheless something of a victim of its times....But despite that, it is a wonderfully bold work, simply irresistible to look at"
‑ Andrew L. Urban, Urban Cinefile
"Marrying a painterly aesthetic with a defiantly homosexual sensibility, this ironic biopic is probably the most accessible film of avant-garde British director Derek Jarman."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"Remarkably true to Caravaggio's visual aesthetic while expanding Jarman's own repertoire of tones and ideas."
‑ Nick Davis, Nick's Flick Picks
"It is very sensually done, emphasizing the artist's gargantuan appetites for bisexual and, especially, homosexual affairs with his models."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
