Great Movies Film Club: Three Colors Trilogy (Blue, White, and Red)

three colors trilogyby Dave Umbricht

“You have chosen….poorly.”

It happens when you are a completest.

No matter what list of movies you attempt to finish, there will be some films that do not resonate.  In the best of times, even if you don’t “like” a movie, you can appreciate it for historical significance at the very least.

Alas, last month’s selection, “Veronika Voss”, was lost on me.  As I said, it happens.

Moving on.

This month’s selection is actually three films.  It should have been last month’s selection, as nothing is more patriotic than the colors red, white, and blue.

Wait.  What?  It’s actually “Blue”, “White”, and “Red”?  After the French flag?  Oh well, still should have been last month’s selection due to Bastille Day.

These are three wildly different films:  drama, comedy, thriller.  Or so I have heard.

I am very excited about this one (ahem…three).

About Dave Umbricht

Dave Umbricht is a self proclaimed "guy who knows a couple of things". However, he has never claimed to know them well. Genetically predisposed to love movies, at age ten he felt really cool being the only fourth grader who knew of the film "My Dinner with Andre", thanks to Siskel & Ebert. For the next twenty years he pretended to have seen the movie until he finally watched it at age 28 and understood what all the fuss was about. He attempted to watch all of the films on Ebert's Great Movies list by age 40. He failed.
