    Lady Snowblood

    ★★★½

    I found the stunning imagery and symbolism in Lady Snowblood much more engaging than its story and characters.

    This time he experiments with a palette of natural and artificial greens, reflecting the true and artificial nature of the characters portrayed in the film. A common thread between this and Blue Ruin is how Saulnier exposes his characters. At first, they seem to have a tough exterior, but traumatic events in the film reveal their true and vulnerable selves.

    The Ain't Rights are no exception, a punk band…
