Three Colors: Red ★★★★★

Great so I want to talk about color. First, this film does something that might be my favorite thing in a movie or book in that it makes the plot so insanely simple that you can take liberty being creative elsewhere. Because of the simple plot the characters are flushed out, the cinematography is engaging, and the colors frame the symbolism and subplot. I'm not saying anything new (the film's title is RED so) but red fits the story super super well. And the color green is a natural compliment that in the film's plot sometimes triumphs, conquers, or disagrees with red. Green streetlights tell the plot to move forward when the characters need to reflect. Green bedsheets in her apartment when she speaks on the phone, a place of conflict. So his car is green with red on the inside. Coincidence??????? A character in conflict.
