In the spirit of our exhibition Monochrome No.2 and The Blue Diary, we put together a list of our favorite “blue” movies. From 1940s classics to art house films and contemporary action movies, we hope you’ll find something to make you laugh, cry, keep you in suspense, and provide some much-needed entertainment.
