* Almost a required element of TooIncompetentToOperateABlanket. The "incompetent" scene will be drab and depressing, but the new miracle product makes everything bright and happy!

* Christiane F is mostly green-tinged. This might be deliberate on the part of the film-makers (since it's about drug addiction), but it looks largely shot under fluorescent lights (in subway stations, etc.), due to budgetary restraints. This will give a green tint to film if not corrected with filters.

* More generally, it's a common trope in both film and television to shoot New York City through a blue filter to make it look depressing, gritty, and urban, and to shoot California through a yellow or red filter to make it look sunny and cheerful.
** Sometimes the yellow or filter is to make it look sunny all right--but not cheerful, but hot, therefore depressing, gritty, and urban.

* Every shot in ''SinCity'' invokes this trope due to CityNoir roots and the shot-for-shot nature of recreating a comic book in live action.
