Not coloured, but in colour
What has a director who only shot two reels of colour film in his career to say about colour in cinema? That director being Eisenstein, a lot. He wrote extensively on the issue of colour at times when colour was either unavailable, as in the 1920s, or, as in the 1940s, when it was still experimental and less sophisticated than today. Alas, his writings are not widely known and in some cases not even translated. However, his insights in the use of colour cinematography are as inspiring as his theory and practice of montage.
