Bong Joon Ho's Oscar nominated Parasite is having a limited run in theaters this week ..... in B&W! Shooting films in color and releasing them in a different hue is nothing new. John Huston shot Reflections In A Golden Eye in color but it was always his wish to release it in a sepia "gold" tint which it was ..... for about a week. Audiences didn't like it and Warners recalled those prints and provided full color prints to theaters. John Badham wanted the color drained from his 1979 Dracula but he was overruled by Universal who sent out full color prints. Badham got his way when the film was released on home video (much to the displeasure of the film's fans). More recently, Frank Darabont's The Mist and George Miller's Mad Max: Fury Road (to name just two) have seen B&W transfers So my question is ..... what do you think of the trend? Do you bother to watch the director approved B&W prints or do you prefer to stay with what you originally saw in the theater? Personally, I like it. After seeing Mad Max: Fury Road in B&W, I don't think I'll ever watch it in color again. But hey, I prefer the desaturated 1979 Dracula too!
