It's best sometimes not to read too much about a film, before exploring it; La Jetée caught me completely off guard, in good way of course. A story about time travel, society's survival and ultimately human experience, truly spellbinding.

In this exceedingly beautiful film the origins of cinema as a theatrical form is inverted; photograph to photograph are displayed belying the cinematic nature of motion, deceptively destroying the incantation of matter. Time is imprisoned in vials of amber as the finality of each somber image sets its last course. If there ever was a filmmaker who thoroughly imbued the spirit of auteur theory in every facet it would be Marker. Words cannot even begin to express the anguish of this visual poetry.

When your film uses stills, you have to make absolutely sure you get all you can out of them, which Marker accomplishes flawlessly. I'm a sucker for time travel stories anyway, and this is one that handles the genre in a surprisingly simple and innovative way.

Highly transfixing and disorienting experience that ambitiously deals with time and memory by emphasizing the control of time in photography & editing. You could view the whole thing as gimmicky but I was thoroughly engaged all the way. One of the very few time-travel films that's almost believable in depicting the actual experience of it. There is something inherently cinematic about our relationship to memory and time.

Who needs these newfangled contraptions? Moving pictures? 3D? Psh! An excellent example of what can be accomplished with narrative over a mere sequence of stills.

Pretty successful story with just photos, music and a voiceover. The narrative was also good with nice ending.

This is the film upon which 12 Monkeys is based. It's very dark and choppy, but it's also very artful and interesting. Really good!

Probably my favorite short ever, and not just because it was what 12 Monkeys was based on. The style is very unique as it's just photos with music and a voice-over instead of the normal moving cinema. Hearing that you'd think it might detach the viewer, but it's actually incredibly compelling.
