Modern Monochrome – 03 – Elephant Man & Zelig

Modern Monochrome

On this, the third episode of the Take Two Podcast we look into a couple of modern films which have been produced in black and white as an artistic decision by the movie makers.

The Elephant Man by director David Lynch portrays story which is as relevant now as ever, and Woody Allen’s Zelig where he plays a man who is a human chameleon seamlessly changing his appearance and personality to suit his environment. From the onset both movies seem very different however as the discussion flows it becomes apparent that they share common themes and even similar messages.
