    Oslo, August 31st


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

    Joachim Trier, in an interview for Oslo, said the emblem of a classical tragedy is that the catharsis always lies outside of the story itself. I’ve never understood (nor cared much for) the concept until this. 

    What a strange but fulfilling sort of catharsis this is.

    It’s incredibly hard not to sentimentalise or patronise a story of a chronically depressed (rehabilitating!) drug addict’s last day on earth. Trier, in my opinion, manages to avoid doing both, yet his direction is…

    The three colours trilogy, for me, is a visual education in humanist(?) ideals and red serves as a climactic conclusion… of sorts. It’s the best standalone piece of the three, without a doubt. It’s Kieślowski‘s lens through which he…

    Can’t help but feel that my interpretation of blue is bleaker than what kieślowski intended lmao…or maybe not? guy’s a self-claimed pessimist(?). I do find this sits better when considered as the starting point of the trilogy, a progression that ends in (evolves into!) red — but less on its own. Anyhow, Juliette Binoche is a vision.
