The Grey: No, not the movie. The weather. What are the best movies for grey days?

I’ve just posted the question on Facebook: What are the most colorful movies you can think of? 

Seriously… it’s a grey and dreary downpour of a day here in Seattle. Help all of us in the Pacific Northwest fight this oppression.

Here are some good suggestions I’ve seen among the responses so far:

  • Moulin Rouge (Yes, that was my first thought as well.)
  • Hero
  • Avatar
  • My Neighbor Totoro
  • Ju Dou
  • The Fall
  • Finding Nemo
  • Monsoon Wedding
  • The Wizard of Oz
  • The Umbrellas of Cherbourg
  • Young Girls of Rochefort
  • Amelie
  • Up
  • Punch-drunk Love
  • Dick Tracy
  • The Red Shoes
  • The Secret of Kells
  • The Life Aquatic
  • Facebook
