    Araki is better when he's dark, but his lone "feel good" movie is still pretty damn good. Romance, Araki-style.

    Splendor is a funny and good-natured romantic dramedy about a polyamorous relationship. While sometimes the comedy and drama elements clash with each other, the film holds itself together thanks to strong performances and plenty of funny humor to go around. I felt that the film treated the subject matter rather well and that it really gives a glimpse into what many would feel is a taboo relationship between three people. I had no problem with this aspect, but I can see uptight people whining about such a setup. Splendor overall is an underrated indie flick that provides plenty of entertainment and it also manages to be rather sexy as well. If you enjoy a good indie film, Splendor is a film worth seeing.

    Probably the most accessible of Gregg Arakiâ(TM)s films, Splendor tells the story of a woman who meets and falls in love with two very different men in the same night. After she is caught trying to juggle the two romances, an unusual threesome comes into existence. Despite still embodying some of Arakiâ(TM)s favourite themes, the controversial director stays away from his most controversial topics, This âmellowing❠is also obvious in the visual style of the film, which is far less recognizable as an indie flick than Arakiâ(TM)s other soft-roughly lit productions. The relationship between the two male protagonists is also much more subdued than in films such as the Doom Generation or Nowhere. One might say a sense of â"albeit unconventional â" hetero-normality prevails throughout the film. While fans of the director might be disappointed with this Araki-light, Splendor is a lovely film, with a fine balance between comedy, drama and the absurd. The plot is simple, but solid and the performances are believable and touching. Probably the best film to introduce inexperienced cinephiles to Araki and his other quirkier brainchildren.
