Fucky Film Review!

Medicine for Melancholy

Barry Jenkins 2008

I’d been wanting to see this one for a while.  At first I was like, whoa – I didn’t know this was filmed in black and white, and then I realized it wasn’t – they just drained almost all out of the color out of it in post.  It’s sort of like, artistic (SF, a super saturated city, shot with almost no saturation whatsoever), because the movie, like its protagonist, is very racially aware.  Like very racially aware.  Which I liked – much better than I liked the characters or their story.  And I liked the end – from the time they leave the club it all felt very true, especially their drunkenness.
