All Critics (47) | Top Critics (17) | Fresh (24) | Rotten (23)

  • While rich with image, the film's plot seems to be chasing its own tail and the result is more boring than tense.

  • As tiresome as the relentless, indulgent inscrutability and lack of story momentum can be, it says something for the movie's visceral power that there isn't an urge to quit on it.

  • I found a few lines and images in the second half intellectually stimulating, but it wasn't enough. "Strange Color" exploited little but my patience.

    September 4, 2014 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…
  • It's a confrontational fever dream film told from constantly shifting perspectives, and a chilly, dizzying trip into a genre defined by violently conflicting emotions.

    August 29, 2014 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Enervatingly synthetic, "The Strange Color of Your Body's Tears" slices and dices the images and tropes of Italian giallo-style slasher films into an inert pile of style.

    August 28, 2014 | Full Review…
  • What "The Strange Color" lacks is the heart that separates a good film from a great one.

Audience Reviews for The Strange Color of Your Body's Tears

  • Oct 05, 2014
    I was really looking forward to the followup film from the team that made Amer, and while this film is just as much of a visual treat, I felt it difficult to get through. What made Amer work so well in this style is how they kept the story very simple, being virtually comprised of three segments that made it easy to follow the inner life of the character, and sympathize with her struggle. The Strange Color seemed to get too caught up in weaving a more convoluted mystery, and this coupled with the dizzying pace and intense imagery made it feel more like a tedious exercise for the eyeballs.

    A nightmarish, LSD-induced exercise of style clearly inspired by the Italian giallo, technically impeccable and gorgeous, although it offers little in terms of narrative (or anything else to keep us interested for too long) and is sexist to suggest that women corrupt men, driving them mad with desire and fatal obsession.

    As visually stunning as it is mind boggling, "The Strange Colour of Your Body's Tears" is an extremely unique ride that will require patience, tolerance for its gritty content and may require re-watching.

    Visually absolutely stunning movie, an ode to Giallo, this looks better than anything that Argento ever made. But... almost 2 hours of abstract images with no narrative to decipher is just a bit too much.
