Screening of the movie “Johnny Mnemonic”, directed by Robert Longo as part of Cyberpunk series during Octopus Film Festival 2019.
Neo was not born in the Matrix – he came into the world as Johnny Mnemonic. In Poland, Keanu Reeves has never been as popular as today, but the actor in the 90s was in the USA the star of the first format. One thing is certain – he did not express the role with expression. Apparently, the action movie likes hard men with emotionless faces. Johnny Mnemonic, in which Reeves impersonates, just like Neo becomes the Chosen One – there are 320 GB of data in his head that can save the world from the NAS, the civilization disease of 2021 (it will be soon). In order to do this, the man has to rush through the apocalyptic Newark in the company of Jane, a cyberpunk warrior. They will both have to kick a couple of ass for Keanu to be nominated for Golden Raspberry. Johnny Mnemonic impresses, above all, with the bizarre beauty of the vision of an online chasm, which resembles animations in the old Windows Media Player. Robert Longo’s film will be loved by every fan of theaters and the cinema of digging. The prize for persevering until the end of the screening will solve the mystery: who is the mysterious Jones? The answer will go beyond your wildest expectations.
