The Color of Time 2012
R | 1h 13min | Biography, Drama, Romance | 9 December 2014 (USA)
A poetic road trip through Pulitzer prize-winning CK Williams’ life.
Motion Picture Rating (MPAA)
Rated R for some sexuality, nudity, language and drug use
This is a prime example of a film that will either alienate or entrance…or possibly both at the same time. My suggestion for best getting something out of this collage of words and images is to just abandon all preconceptions and allow it to seduce you.
First simply savor the absolutely stunning beauty of the photography…the incandescence of the closeups and exquisite portraits of potentially mundane locals are among the most beautiful images that I have ever seen…
And as the visual glow seduces you …let the deceptively simple words gradually intertwine with the photography till the entire film becomes a rather entrancing collage of one creative human’s voyage through life.
I am saddened that so few audiences seem willing to give up a few moments of their lives to open themselves to one of the loveliest and most perceptive little films in recent memory…
Give it (and yourself) a chance.
