    Description

    Colour remains one of the few uncharted territories in writing about film style. Colour is the first monograph to deal with the close criticism of film colour across decades and countries. Through detailed explorations of films such as Three Colours: White and The Green Ray, this study offers a way of approaching, interpreting, and appreciating cinematic colour. The book also considers film's ability to place colour in a shifting relationship with all other points of style including camerawork, editing, performance, music, and lighting. Accessible and inventive in its approach, Colour invites the reader to see films differently, providing a fresh perspective of this overlooked element of cinema aesthetics.

    Reviews

    'This book is a major contribution to the scholarship of film art. Each chapter develops and illuminates the range, significance and usage of colour in our understanding and experience of the particular films chosen and, in doing so, heightens our alertness to colour's crucial significance for film aesthetics in general. The author's extraordinary prose is a guide and companion in the appreciation of this complex and underexplored region of film art.'
