This movie has way too good a cast to go straight to video. These things happen, I guess. At least it’s on Blu Ray so it looks good the first time you see it. The film has a saturated look which means grainy, but still detailed in all the stark, run down city locations in which it is set.

On Blu-Ray: Powder Blue

When the lighting cooperates with the film stock, you get some clear shots of actors’ dramatically pained faces. The lighting is deliberate, filling the screen with a yellow or blue tint. They’re themed to the characters too, but when they interact, the film chooses one color to dominate the scene.

Jessica Biel’s big scene, incidentally, is red. With the red wax she uses as a prop, her whole body kind of blends into the scene. Don’t worry, you can still see her, but I figured they’d appreciate an artistic analysis rather than just a guide to fast forwarding to the good parts.
