SciFi Saturday!

La Jetée is told almost entirely in still photos. This movie is heavily discussed in academic settings, and for good reason.  Terry Gilliam adapted the story for 12 Monkeys. Though not feature length, it works as a feature. Chris Marker is the director. The film has a very “European” atmosphere and a very “American” sense of pacing.
