La Jetée

La Jetée ★★★★

I think this is a great experiment of using sound and images to convey some very complex emotions. A lot of times I didn't even realize why I was feeling uncomfortable or surprised until I noticed the subtle uses of sounds like whispers, heartbeats, or birds. It doesn't answer all your questions, but it's effective storytelling, and awesome film making.

I like the idea of Terry Gilliam sitting Bruce Willis down to watch this and seeing the confused look on his face that probably followed.
