Mad Max Fury Road: Black & Chrome edition.
Interesting. I loved Fury Road and one of the things that made it so good was how it looks: outstanding colors to depict a post-apocalyptic world in an almost comic book fashion. And here comes the black & chrome edition which has the film in black and white.
Having seen the film several times already, I was very curious to see if a black & white version of the film would work. And it does in some places, and in others it doesn't. For some reason it has a silent movie feel right from the beginning. Probably because the magic of Fury Road is that it's mostly images and no talking. The images are shot beautifully and the contrast of black & white seem to accentuate that, which is most prominent in the night shots and some beautiful close-ups of Immortan Joe, the villain.
In other moments, the black & white falls flat on its face. The most apparent moment is when they enter the sandstorm, early on in the film. A majestic scene which is ominous from the moment you, as a spectator, see it. In black and white, not so much. You can hardly see what they're looking at when they approach the storm.
All in all, it's a bit of winning and a bit of losing. But in the end, it's always a feast to watch this masterpiece and any reason to watch it in cinema, I gladly accept.
