Spectral Celluloid

Instead of renting the same kind of movies (say, horror or romantic comedy), create diversity by finding an unintended similarity. Try colors, for example:

  • The Green Mile Stephen King in prison again

  • Blue Velvet David Lynch's masterpiece

  • Red Sorghum Early Zhang Yimou

  • Picture of Dorian Gray Based on the Oscar Wilde novel

  • Men in Black Sci-fi without pretense

  • White Heat James Cagney as oedipal mobster

  • The Pink Panther Inspector Clouseau's absurd adventures

  • The Color Purple Underappreciated Spielberg

And, obviously, Kieslowski's "Rouge", "Blanc" and "Bleu" movies. Now there's an interesting movie night.
