Deemed old-fashioned or otherwise ‘retro’, black-and-white film is often seen as a nostalgic window into the past. However, at heart, the interplay between black and white is a game of contrast and balance in which looks can be deceiving, all the more so in the hands of filmmakers who frame their monochrome images through a fantastical lens. Just as silent cinema can give voice to the voiceless, so too can black and white challenge preconceived notions or reinvent the ‘normal’ with ironic reversals in favor of the have-nots, bites of poetic justice that serve culprits more than their just desserts and explosive breakdowns of gender-biased binary thinking. In a crazy world, monochrome madness might just be the cure that lends a little color to your outlook on life.
