A great movie

Since I kept hearing some great things about this flick, I was really eager to check it out. On top of that, I really liked a lot ‘Twelve monkeys’, it is easily my favorite movie directed by Terry Gilliam,  so I was really curious about this short feature because Gillian was inspired this short.

Films that absolutely needed that remake. (10 movies items)

"This is a remarkable film, but the remake Terry Gilliam's 1996 film, 12 Monkeys, was needed to flesh out the story, add motion pictures (the original was a collection of still photos) and a theatrical release. Both films hold up well."

""How can a film composed almost entirely of still frames and of such a brief length be such a revered and influential summation on the very nature of cinematic time? There is nothing else like it in all of cinema. It is perfect." - Dave Filipi"
