Thanks for posting this, Sam. I think Red may be my favorite Kieslowski film. It has a hypnotic, time-out-of-time quality that I never get tired of. Red is also, as you seem to be pointing out, Kieslowski's most visually beautiful work, not least because of Isabelle Adjani.

"Time-out-of-time" is a good reference for Red. I think all of Kieslowski's work has a hypnotic sense. The viewer becomes lost in the flow of story.

That's such a beautiful photo I had to gasp. Time to watch that one again.

But it's not Adjani, it's Jacob. And Trintignant is just as beautiful, in his unique way.

I just posted a photo of Jacob and Trintignant on my blog.

Andrew: You're right, of course, about Jacob. (Slapping my forehead with a little grimace.)

I like the photo at your blog, Andrew.

Don't hit yourself too hard, James. At any rate, Red is one of the most beautiful films I've ever seen. Beautiful and amazing to watch.

That image of Irene Jacob is my desktop wallpaper. Red remains in my top three favorite films of all time. It makes me emotional every time I watch it, despite having seen it dozens and dozens of times.

One of my favorite scenes is where Valentine and the Judge are sitting in his house and the sun is setting and casting such beautiful light. So many quiet wonderul moments.

That is such a great scene. I agree Collin.
