On his blog, Robert Mills examines the use of color in films as a storytelling device, using examples from Oz the Great and Powerful, Memento, Beauty and the Beast, and more.

He writes, "Color can have political, religious and cultural connotations, represent gender and as believed by Kandisnky, have emotional and physical effects on us. Color can also improve our memory, influence buying decisions, indicate meaning and tell stories. It’s that very last one that interests me most. In this post I want to focus on the use of color as a storytelling device in films."
