yeah maybe the black and white is supposed to show her state of mind is like the opening scene when she gets shot in the head. though id prob go with your notion of colour of hopelessness, i thought maybe it was referencing an old b & w movie with a similar scene since it looks real classic looking, or maybe he just did it coz it looks cooler and adds to the claustrophobia
