I liked the use of color, black & white, and red tinted film to signify mood. All of the dance sequences, the bagpipes and traditional music vocal tracks, the exotic sounding horns and recorders, the religious images and images of lambs and goats were phenomenal.

The hyperactive camera was over the top but in a pleasing way, and the story of lost love was moving

I was struck by how everyone went around carrying and using axes

The Color of Pomegranates is at the National Museum of Asian Art (the Smithsonian is in the process of unpersoning Freer and Sackler) this Saturday. Is anyone else interested in going? Can anyone here convince me to overcome my exhaustion and go?

I first saw The Colour of Pomegranates on a dbl bill with Tarkovsky's Stalker at The Scala in Kings Cross - those were the days!

Because the filmography is so small, I think he's one of those people who never made a 'bad' film - it's all of interest.
