BMFcast354 – Johnny Mnemonic – Dolph’n FriendsBy
Johnny Mnemonic (1995) marks Keanu Reeves’ official first-half debut, and he’s joined by a bevy of BMFcast alums including Ice-T, Udo Kier, Henry Rollins, and Dolph Lundgren. Keanu is a future courier, trading corporate secrets in his brain. Every one wants what he’s got, or wants him dead. If’s a wonderland of mid-’90s cyber-whatever. This is a fun one.
After the break, we discuss HBO’s Westworld (2016) and get into spoiler speculation in weekly reviews before Maki gets all indie in his year-end catch-up, talking about The Fits, Green Room and The Witch (or The VVitch, if you are so inclined.) Enjoy!
