Lost Classic – Derek Jarman’s Jubilee, irreverent take on the 70s punk scene

BY Mattie Brignal   /  14 March 2020

Jubilee, considered by many to be the ultimate punk film, pissed off a lot of punks. Siouxsie and the Banshees labelled the 1978 apocalyptic satire, “hippy trash”. Adam Ant said it was a “mess”. American punk singer, Jayne County, called it “wasted celluloid”. Not great press considering all of them had starred in the film.
