Highly recommended this Face to Face interview with Derek Jarman. Around 25 minutes in he speaks of camp and fitting in using a metaphor of schizophrenia. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=_rnDr-xW5uo

What a charming man he was. I've always felt a little unnerved by the contrast of his character with the blasphemy-skimming edginess of Jubilee. I'm also curious about the sentiment driving his idle wish for his work to be erased on his passing. When I think about the tension between art and humility, I think of him.
