Three Colors: White

Three Colors: White ★★★★

Started to get into this film when the luggage scene happened, and was really digging it by the time the shooting scene happened. I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this, since this is the least critically-acclaimed of the bunch. White is supposed to represent equality on the French flag, and the film nicely subverts that.

What was most surprising to me is the comedy. I wasn't expecting one after the somber mood of Blue, but having life constantly (and sometimes literally) shitting on Karol for the first half of the film because his dick won't get hard is really funny.

I wished the film actually used more white colors, but I understand that it's a lot harder to capture white as a color than blue or red. Still, I think I prefer this slightly over Blue.
