La Jetée

La Jetée ★★★½

I didn't remember the connection to 12 Monkeys until about halfway through this flick, but, truth be told, I think I like this version better, much as I enjoy Terry Gilliam (and Brad Pitt when he's acting crazy). La jetée is short, concise, and I LOVE the use of still photos. I'm usually not a fan of avant garde films or short films, but this one has a clear narrative - always a good thing for me - and its filming style enhances the story rather than obscures it.

How it entered my Flickchart:
La jetée > Let the Right One In
La jetée < Zoolander
La jetée > Must Love Dogs
La jetée < Hot Fuzz
La jetée < You've Got Mail
La jetée < Charlie St. Cloud

Final spot: #691 out of 1871.
