Did buy Tree of Life based on its tier ranking here and a similar production article I linked in the separate Tree of Life thread. Surprised about your color palette comment for TOL, though, since I thought it aimed for a normal balanced palette--and tried to maximize PQ throughout. -- John
There were *some* scenes in Tree of Life that had a "drab color palette." Here is my review of the film with comments on those scenes:
But I was wrong to imply that it had very little color throughout the whole film, so I would simply say that one could complain about the selected scenes that had a rather drab color palette, yet the sharpness and details are so exemplary that one can overlook the subdued color palette of those scenes. Of course I mentioned Sin City and that truly is void of color through the majority of its running time, yet there too the details, sharpness and depth more than made up for the lack of color.
