The best non-Technicolor color film


Recommended Posts

I never thought any color system could ever be as good as Technicolor at its best. Sure, when the art direction and cinematography on a Technicolor film were mediocre, and the reverse were true for another color system, the results could be comparable.  But when all the cylinders were hitting nothing could even come close to Technicolor.  Until I saw Black Orpheus.  The look of the film is spectacular, and Marcel Camus uses it to create a kaleidoscope to mirror the riotousness of carnival.  That combined with a super-told story makes for a blast of a movie--though I could never understand why Orfeo preferred Eurydice to Mira.  A lightning bolt compared to a lightning bug.
