I Am Curious: Yellow by tincolor

Are you curious? Are you yellow? The first in a two part film about director Vilgot Sjoman and the film he is making. There’s so much that’s clever about I Am Curious: Yellow, but what kept me watching through to the end was the way the lead actress convincingly plays both her framed narrative character and her film-within-a-film character. It’s quite disorienting when you get invested in two completely different characters that are played by the same actress. But clever doesn’t do this film justice. Without being able to really explain why, I found the entire two hours irresistibly engrossing. Worth checking out if you’re in for a cerebral film with subtitles.

(I haven’t seen the companion film, I Am Curious: Blue, but I have to say, I am…intrigued.)
