Tell Us What Your Favorite Black and White Film Is and Why!

It’s Open Thread time again, and this week we’ve got a bit of a challenge for you. Why? Because we want you to name your favorite black and white film.

“Easy,” you may be thinking, “it’s Casablanca!” But bear in mind that we said black and white film, NOT classic film.

This is where your potential conundrum comes in. Because contemporary black and white films like Clerks or The Man Who Wasn’t There, Dead Man or other compelling indie fare are also in play here.

Here’s what to do, in the comments below tell us what your favorite film is and why. Do you wish they made more films in black and white. Feel free to even discuss the colorization of movies — always a hot button issue among movie lovers. We are standing by eager to see what you have to say about this…
