Storyline

What happens to a dream when the dreamer is gone? PAINT IT BLACK is the story of the aftermath of Michael's death, and Josie's struggle to hold onto the true world he shared with her. As Josie searches for the key to understanding his death, she finds herself both repelled and attracted to Michael's pianist mother, Meredith, who holds Josie responsible for her son's torment. Soon, the two women find themselves drawn into a twisted relationship reflecting equal parts distrust and blind need. Written by Amber Tamblyn

Fantastically dark and beautiful!
11 October 2017 | by johan-adamssonSee all my reviews

This is one of the best movies I have seen!

It is very artistic and captivating with a beautiful dark atmosphere. It is deep and real in the way it display emotions.

Many movies about love seems so fake and cliché, not this one. But I think you must have experienced true love to appreciate how good Paint It Black portrays the devastation of suddenly losing it.

The soundtrack adds a lot to enhance the melancholy emotions, together with dreamy color filters and professional cinematography.

I give Paint It Black 10/10
