Spectrum of the Soul: Three Colors on Blu-ray from Criterion (1994)*****


Krzysztof Kieślowski's Three Colors trilogy, finally available in HD thanks to a superb Criterion boxed set, is a work that's as mesmerizing today as it was on its initial release 17 years ago. It's ironic that the collection has achieved the timelessness of a true classic, for Three Colors was intended to capture the specific zeitgeist of a unique moment in European history.
