The Last of England
($29.95 Blu-ray, $24.95 DVD; Kino)

Tragically under-appreciated in the States, Derek Jarman’s explosive non-narrative film captures his impressions of Thatcherite England as a post-war wasteland, spliced together with home movies and dire lyrics from poets like T.S. Eliot and Allen Ginsberg. In this new high-definition transfer, Jarman muse Tilda Swinton (Michael Clayton) is able to demand the viewer’s gaze like never before.
