I'm dying to see this. It's in limited release -- has anyone been so lucky yet?

La Règle du Jeu (Rules of the Game), directed by Jean Renoir (son of Auguste)

Last night, I watched one of the most amazing movies I've ever seen: Baraka

To say that it was simultaneously enlightening, depressing and cathartic is an understatement - no other movie has made me experience such a wide range of emotions.

I found a few scences on the Tube, but they don't accurately portray the film.



(I think this one has circulated through the boards a few times)

Just saw this fabulous sci-fi film:



The last line was possibly the best moment in the entire movie. I won't give it away, but I've gotta say it was tight.

Did you watch this earlier, tunes? The sound is amazing.

The short (30") movie that inspired 12 monkeys. It is composed of a series of still photographs with the voice of a narrator, and a soundtrack. Pure and blissful minimalism.

Watch the full movie, you won't regret it:

Yeah, I saw it when terence first posted it - that's why I looked into 12 Monkeys.

I'm trying to get my photography class to watch it (La Jetée), but apparently it's "too mentally disturbing" for 'em...

What?!?


Oh, sure, they can make you read Billy Budd, Jude the Obscure, Anna Karenina, Romeo and Juliet, but you can't handle La Jetée....

This was co-directed by Walerian Borowczyk and Chris Marker, who directed La Jetée up there. It's interesting -- you can really see the influence on Terry Gilliam of Monty Python. Not surprising that he went on to base 12 Monkeys on La Jetée. Amazing that this was done in 1959. I've watched it 3 times, but once I had my eyes closed.
