Lesley Walker developed a fast moving style that helped define the 80s zeitgeist in British film and television, editing features like Mona Lisa and Letter to Brezhnev. The Tempest is one of her earliest credits and she pioneered a suitably free and unconventional approach, deliberately mistiming and not necessarily matching shots up, contributing enormously to the disorienting effect of the film. Derek Jarman’s Shakespeare adaptation is far more radical and cinematic than the average heritage cinema style take on the bard but also more considerate of its Renaissance origins. An underrated British classic.
