La Jetée (rewatch)

Posted by martinteller on November 20, 2007

Forever linked with two bits of data: it’s told entirely (except for about 4 seconds) in still images, and it’s the inspiration for Gilliam’s 12 Monkeys.  I confess I was a bit less than impressed when I saw it about 7 years ago, now I’m more charmed by it.  The still photography is a clever idea that makes it seem like a piece of history, a future archaeology.  And the story is mysterious and engaging, with a kind of contemplative Resnais feel to it.  Just the right length, too.  Rating: 8
