    Is there a type of lens filter that blocks out all color, so that you would be left with the effect of seeing the world around you as though it was a black & white movie? Is such a filter possible, under the laws of optics?

    there is a wratten 90 filter which removes color, well sort of. everything has an orange tint, but it does give one an idea of what th ings will look like in black and white.
    Years ago it was used often with people just learning to do advanced black and white image making as it does help mute colors.

    they also make an expensive filter used in making movies that does the same thing.
