A great movie

7 years, 4 months ago at Jan 18 12:21
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 by this short. Eventually, the whole thing just really blew me away. Seriously, by now, I have seen more than ... read more
View all The Pier reviews
Time travel, still images, a past, present and future and the aftermath of World War III. The tale of a man, a slave, sent back and forth, in and out of time, to find a solution to the world's fate. To replenish its decreasing stocks of food, medicine and energies, and in doing so, resulting in a perpetual memory of a lone female, life, death and past events that are recreated on an airports jetée.

1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die (2017) (631 movies items)

" Notes: Since I really liked a lot ‘Twelve monkeys’, it is easily my favorite movie directed by Terry Gilliam, I was really curious about this short feature because Gillian was inspired by this short. Eventually, the whole thing just really blew me away. Seriously, by now, I have seen more than 5000 movies and it is very rare that a movie brings up something really new or groundbreaking. Well, this flick was definitely an exception and it is certainly one of the most original movies I have"

My movie year 2018 (289 movies items)

"21.5. (Yle Areena) Kiinnostava kerrontatapa dokumenttimaisesti etenevine valokuvasarjoineen. Loppu on tänä päivänä jo arvattavissa, mutta se sykähdyttää silti."

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"
