Yellow (Aka City Of Lust) Is A Suspenseful Thriller, Greatly Influenced By The Master Of Suspense Dario Argento. There Is a Chill Of What Is To Come Next In Every Scene And A Sense That You Know What Is Going On, But You Can't Tear Yourself Away Wanting To Make Sure You Are Right.
The Wonderful Thing About This Style Is That At The End If It Turns Out You Are Right You Are No Less Disappointed By The Journey. Some Of The Surrealism In The Scenes Were Masterful. In One Scene The Female Lead Is Getting Ready To Go Out and It Is Obvious That The Film Is Being Fast Forwarded, Yet The TV Right Next To Her Is On The News At A Normal Pace. Indicating The High Level Of Anxiety Where Everything Around Her Is Perfectly Normal.
Unfortunately I Do Have To Agree With A Previous Reviewer, If You Have No Experience With This Style Of Movie Making (ala Dario Argento ex: Deep Red, Susperia, etc...) You Are Going To Miss All The Things That Make This Type Of Movie Truly A Work Of Art. My Recommendation Watch It, Don't Miss It You May Just Be Intrigued Enough To Open Up A Whole New Genre For Yourself ...... I Gave It An 8 Out Of 10 ......
