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. Derek Jarman is hitting his stride here – and doesn’t spare the shocks – while electrifying punk rock numbers are abrasively delivered by Jayne County and Adam Ant. The mythological past and bleak future converge on the sparse, grey streets of London.
