MOVIE REVIEWS : Weekend Entries in British Film Festival : Reviews of the American Film Institute's BritFest. : : SATURDAY : "THE ANGELIC CONVERSATION"

February 11, 1988|KEVIN THOMAS

Monicas, Noon and 6 p.m.

An attempt by Derek Jarman, the controversial director of "Sebastiane" and "Caravaggio," to evoke homosexual longing through blurred, step-printed images of Calvin Klein-Bruce Weber-type young males in various locales accompanied, on occasion, by Judi Dench's eloquent reading of Shakespearean sonnets. At 20 minutes "The Angelic Conversation" might just have seemed poetic; at 78, it's a pretentious bore.
