The Robert Rodriquez/Frank Miller-directed sequel to “Sin City” is hitting theaters this weekend, so I’m ranking my favorite black-and-white movies of the modern era. Note: These are movies shot in black and white after color became the norm. Otherwise, my favorite movie ever, “Dr. Strangelove,” would top this list.
One thing I’ve noted from the reaction to the death of Robin Williams is how people have connected to so many of his performances. There’s no consensus, no one iconic role. For a public figure, everyone’s favorite memories seem strangely personal. Here are mine.
