Deep Red

Esther Urlus
Netherlands 2012 / 7’

Deep Redhas nothing in common with Dario Argento’s classic, although we do find, as with the giallo master, an exceptional intensity of colour changing on the screen. The colourisation is not just an attractive ornamentation here, but a material and theme. The director deliberately avoids using any other sensual impressions to give priority and exclusivity back to the image on screen.
