The Magic Of Monotony

Despite a heavy amount of attention being paid to the girl on girl sex scenes in Blue is the Warmest Color, Nolan Feeney finds that its those “drawn-out displays of everyday monotony” that give the film its punch:

“Many of these scenes are as beautifully shot as they are, frankly, boring. But they also serve an important purpose, establishing an emotional baseline that’s necessary to appreicate the film’s most affecting character developments. All that time spent getting inside Adèle’s head is the price of admission for one of the year’s best performances.”
