Love is the Devil

Director: John Maybury

Length: UK 1998 (91 mins)

Set in the bawdy, decadent world of 1960s Soho, this dazzling and audacious film charts the powerful and dangerous relationship between one of Britain’s most revered twentieth -century artists, the late Francis Bacon (Derek Jacobi), and his lover and muse George Dyer (Daniel Craig) to explore the territory where love, sex and art collide. The film’s exquisite and unusual style – at once beautiful  and grotesque – perfectly captures the extraordinary energy of Bacon’s art (although no actual works of Bacon are depicted in this film).
