Blue

Blue ★★★★½

Contemplative, incredibly imaginative, and intensely personal. The specific's of Jarman, from the unique way he saw the world through obscured vision at the end of his life, to his pronunciation of specific words makes this a mesmerizing audio-visual piece of art. I also found many personal connections in his narrative because of my experience with chronic illness and treatment with many side effects so I can really respect his love of film and life that comes across through this movie. He is able to communicate such emotional depth with a commitment to this specific color, his poetry and narration (accompanied by a handful of other talented voices,) and a distorted soundtrack. Wouldn't recommend this movie to everyone, as it really is just credits and the color blue that you see onscreen, but it truly is a fascinating and sad story this talented man was able to communicate with such limited film-language.
