Derek Jarman's Jubilee is the original punk film and the one closest to the movement's anti-establishment, "no-future" attitude.
The story sees Queen Elizabeth I, transported by the angel Ariel, to a bleak England of the future where chaos now reigns. Buckingham Palace has been purchased by a megalomaniac who has transformed it into a recording studio for punk musicians. A group of punk girls pass the time with acts of mindless violence, sex and the occasional murder. Anarchy rules in the UK.
