brilliant. brilliant. brilliant. i am speechless. so stunning, breathtaking, engaging and chilling. so visually and narratively poetic, this short collection of still images conveys so much with so little. a perfect paradigm for any filmmaker who wants to discover the true essence of filmmaking.

La Jetée as a movie is one of the most interesting I’ve encountered. Virtually the whole movie involves narrating still shots. While this sounds like a glorified slideshow, its anything but. The pacing is magnificent. The mood created is truly immersive. In a truly astounding feat, Marker traps the viewer in this "slide show" mentality, and then, as the movie is discussing whether the character can decipher what’s real or not, he pulls the run out from under us.

I re-watched this short film after 5 years. It didn't affect me as much as the first time, but it struck me how well sound and music are used. It's really unfair to compare it to "12 monkeys" (or other way around). It's experimental cinema, very different from traditional 25 frames-per-second narratives, but even more effective and captivating.

The film is entirely still images with a narration, but those images are so effective that it still feels as if you're seeing the action, kind of like when reading a good book you form pictures of what you're reading. Marker gives you some amazing images and an interesting narration while your mind completes the picture for you, it was incredibly effective. The story itself was also quite creative and even though I should have seen it coming, the ending was very good and caught me by surprise.

12 Monkeys in 1/4 of the time and with twice the impact. The narrative is well-told and the grainy haunting stills accompanying it are as effective as any film.

Wow. An amazing piece of cinema focused on our memories, their creation, the spaces between them, and our absorption in them. Marker uses the technique of still photographs to perfection, as the unseen movements create a mystery exactly appropriate to memory. And the music, the strangely recorded voice over, and of course, the beautiful photographs all combine to create one of the most distinctive and engrossing films ever made.
