Johnny Mnemonic (1995) [#19 – winter solstice special 2021]

December 21, 2021

Join Matt and Dave for a winter solstice special with this last chance to explore 2021 via 1995 in 2021.

At the hollow centre is Johnny (Keanu Reeves), a mnemonic courier exposing the fragility of truth and revealing – after psychoanalyst Jacques Lacan – the subject barred from itself.
