    Three Colors: Blue

    ★★★

    I'm always fascinated by Kieślowski's movies, but his aesthetic feels excessively artsy - for lack of a better phrase. Everything is symbolic, and the transitions and flairs feel less than organic. But when the movie is just observing a character as they navigate their environment without any kind of commentary, it's engaging and moving. The less heavy-handed, the better.

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    A friend of mine once said, "All movies end one of three ways. Somebody gets married. Somebody dies. Or mimes playing tennis."

    Fifty Shades of Grey

    In one scene, Grey reminds Anna to remember her safe word. He then ties her down and performs oral sex on her. Unless he's abominably bad at oral sex, she's never going to use that safe word. On the other hand, I tried using the safe word, but the movie kept going.
