La Jetée


With a running time of 28 minutes, this is one of the shorter films on this list, if it can even be called a film. Chris Marker’s 1961 experiment (a direct inspiration for Terry Gilliam’s 12 Monkeys, which is essentially a remake) consists of nothing but still images and narration, which tell a disturbing science fiction story with a pessimistic ending. One of the all-time great science fiction films.
