While Blue seems to constitute as Krzysztof Kieślowski’s visually poignant tour de force, and White seems to cavort as his race to the grimmest of plots, Three Colors: Red seems to be his elaborate labyrinth of the trilogy. It pioneers itself off with a conundrum of knots and from thereon, gradually unties the strings and strands from all its tyrannical loops and splices, ultimately leaving viewers in tears of contentment by the conclusion of its unveiling.
It’s peculiar because the whole phenomena shoots by so quickly, yet, it, in the long run, accents the most written profundity out of the three Color films—it’s psychological profundity through optical storytelling is debatable when setting it aside next to Blue, however.
Blue is still my favorite color, by the way. In both cases. Surprise, surprise.
“Three Colors: Red” is now available to rent and buy on Amazon Prime, iTunes, and The Criterion Channel.
