HACKERS (1995) is a bonafide neon-90’s cult classic that sure “looks crispy in the dark” led by Angelina Jolie, Johnny Lee Miller, and a magnificently manic Matthew Lillard. Director Iain Softley crafts a visually stunning cyber-thriller, immersing us in a world of tech-savvy teenage rebels taking on techno-terrorists in a dangerous game of high-stakes hacking. Prepare for an exhilarating thrill ride with the OG “keyboard cowboys”—packed to the walls with thumping 90s techno, countless PC relics, “The King of Nynex” and so much more.
JOHNNY MNEMONIC (1995) will be shown in William Gibson’s vastly preferred newly released and remastered “black & white” cut from visionary director Robert Longo. Misunderstood in its initial release, this new high contrast black and white release re-contextualizes Gibson’s world and his characters in a striking new vision of a neo-noir future that feels far more akin to a grungy mid-90s indie. A personal favorite of its star, Keanu Reeves plays a down-on-his-luck courier with a deadly brain implant full of stolen Yakuza data. Come rediscover this cyberpunk classic—long overdue for artistic reappraisal.
