<< An odd, vague question - films where red and blue are used as contrasts in
 order to highlight conflicting moods, express relationships of oppositions
 and the like.  >>
I remember in a few popular films of recent years the use of red lighting.
 In "Flatliners", red light is a precursor to a horrific dream sequence.  In
"Philadelphia", red light was used during the scene when Tom Hanks character
is listening to an opera and emoting his feelings for the piece.  I remember
seeing an interview with the director when the film came out, but I can't
recollect what he said about his technique in that scene.  Hope this helps!
