La Jetee (1962), by Chris Marker

May 14, 2007

Another masterpiece. This was the film upon which Terry Gilliam based 12 Monkeys. But Gilliam never even came close to the spirit and genius of the original. For my money one of the five best films ever made. Captured almost entirely in a series of stills, there is only is one moment of movement.

26 minutes of magic. Do watch it. You cannot help but be enthralled.
