I Am Curious Yellow (Sweden, 1968)

You probably won’t believe me but the only reason I was watching this was for historical reasons: its sex scenes made it a cause celebre. Actually the film is a brilliant political movie about youthful idealism and how the personal mixes with the political. As self-reflexive as Godard but with even more fun. And the sex scenes are realistic; maybe that’s why they were so disturbing (though anything will disturb the moral guardians of America it seems – see previous post). Sure the movie’s dated a bit but it’s very much of its time; it needs resurrecting from its porn tag. (DVD) http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0061834/
