Video: Hacking into cyber subculture with Zero Cool and Acid Burn
Tuesday 16 September 1997
Warner Home release computer-age thriller, , for purchase, which sees Johnny Lee Miller (Sickboy in Trainspotting) play Zero Cool, a cyber- punk and expert computer hacker. Cool has to save himself and his friend, Acid Burn, played by Miller's real-life wife, Angelina Jolie, as they find themselves the fall-guys for a massive corporate scam.
Lots of silly names, but a half-reasonable representation of cyber-subculture.
Benny and Joon
The hugely handsome Johnny Depp, below, stars as the Chaplin/Buster Keaton- obsessed and almost mute Sam in this decidedly off-beat romantic comedy, released for purchase by Warner Home Video. Sam entertains the neighbourhood and wins the heart of Joon (Mary Stuart Masterson), thanks to his talent for recreating the sketches of the great silent comics.
We have five copies of `Benny and Joon' to give away. Send your name and address on a postcard to Benny, Eye Prizes, The Independent, 1 Canada Square, Canary Wharf E14 5DL
