Johnny Mnemonic director renders the classic in b&w, gives interview

Robert Longo: “When I saw the first version of the black-and-white film, I was just so happy. It was so much closer to what I imagined it to be, for sure. I knew turning it black-and-white would get it closer to where I imagined it from the very beginning. In my work, I take inspiration from films like AlphavilleLa Jetée, things like that. A lot of black-and-white movies are not really black-and-white. They’re kind of gray. The contrast is really pumped up now [in this cut] so it’s very black-and-white.”
