Thursday Video: La Jette

I loves me some 12 Monkeys. In fact, I think it’s probably Terry Gilliam’s best film. I even know it’s based upon the French film, La Jette by Chris Marker, but I’ve never seen the original, until now. Thanks to our series of tubes, you too can watch the original film below. Well, it’s really a slide show with narration, but you get the idea.

It’s amazing how much from the original made it into Gilliam’s version, then filled out with all kinds of cool stuff from his warped mind. I can only hope that his Dr. Parnasus comes close to 12 Monkeys.
