Marvelous Movie Mondays: Blue Movie vs Liquidator

EPFC | April 8th, 2020

guest curator: Kerry St. Laurent

Theme: Tonal Contrast
We’re looking at films that explore contrast in the several ways we can interpret the word “tone” – sound, color, and mood – both in each individual piece and how they contrast with each other.

Today’s first pairing is “Blue Movie” by Michael Morris (2016) and “Liquidator” by Karel Doing (2010). Both manipulate archival footage and use monochromatic palettes, but the end results span from romantic to sinister, vibrant to desaturated, and rounded to sharp. See for yourself and tell us how you think these two films work (or don’t) together!
