Substituting a decaying Gothic mansion for Shakespeare's island and placing emphasis on absurdist comedy rather than campness, Jarman's idiosyncratic reworking of the Bard is a strange sum of its parts. In its own way, it's as visually interesting as Greenaway's recent version of the same material.
