La JeteeDec 28 2006

After getting an email from a reader last week (thx, david), I poked around a little and found the cult French film on YouTube:

Some notes on the film:

  • It was made in 1962 by Chris Marker and is only 28 minutes long.
  • La Jetée is regularly included on all-time best-of lists.
  • The film has no dialogue and is almost entirely comprised of still photography.
  • Terry Gilliam's Twelve Monkeys was based in part on La Jetée.
