Notes from the attic: La Jetée

We just watched this striking 19642 photomontage from Chris Maker about a post-nuclear holocaust underground community and a Parisian soldier sent back in time to seek aid from the past. It's about a half hour long. And definitely worth checking out. You can rent the DVD from 9th Street Video.

This was our first introduction to Chris Maker in movie club. I hope to watch Sans Soleil soon...though maybe we'll start a Tony Scott memorial retrospective instead.
