The Color of Pomegranates (Armenian: Նռան գույնը) is a 1969 Soviet film written and directed by Sergei Parajanov. It made the Top 10 list in Cahiers du cinéma in 1982 and Top 100 in Time Out

The Color of Pomegranates is a biography of the Armenian ashug Sayat-Nova (King of Song) that attempts to reveal the poet's life visually and poetically rather than literally. The film is presented in a form of static tableaux and depicts the poet's coming of age, discovery of the female form, falling in love, entering a monastery and dying, all framed through both Sergei Parajanov's imagination and Sayat Nova's poems. Actress Sofiko Chiaureli notably plays six roles in the film, both male and female. According to Frank Williams, Paradjanov's film celebrates the survival of Armenian culture in the teeth of oppression and persecution: "There are specific images that are highly charged — blood-red juice spilling from a cut pomegranate into a cloth and forming a stain in the shape of the boundaries of the ancient Kingdom of Armenia; dyers lifting hanks of wool out of vats in the colours of the national flag, and so on" - wikipedia

Director Sergei Paradjanov made a practice of making highly idiosyncratic films based on the folklore of regions in the former Soviet Union. In 1969 he made this film, based in part on the life of the 18th-century Armenian poet-monk, Sayat Nova.



Seriously out of favor with Soviet authorities (he was imprisoned in 1974 for his homosexuality, among other things), this film was not seen in the international arena until 1977. Then, The Color of Pomegranates was widely acclaimed for its poetic and non-narrative blending of historical and biographical Armenian imagery.

That was pretty funny, chump, in a 'sad but true' sort of way.

Any motorcyclists in the crowd? Anarchists or scofflaws? Give it ten minutes.

But first, don't you hate movies with titles that give away the ending? I do. This isn't one of those, though. But if you like riding motorcycles, especially going very fast on one, you'll get a thrill out of watching this, about the Swedish Ghost Rider, the Final Ride

If you have heart issues, please pass this by. Seriously. See if you can take 10 minutes of watching in great anticipation of a catastrophe that never happens.

His Final Ride is a spectacular performance.

(Yes, the morality of riding at such great speed in traffic is questioned at the end)

At the congressional luncheon immediately following his 1981 inauguration, Reagan shamelessly delivers his advertising campaign's promised tagline:

20 minutes. Be warned - this emotionally powerful video captures the death of innocents and will leave you haunted.
