12 Monkeys & La Jetée - Renegade Cut
by Renegade Cut
In this video essay, Leon Thomas compares Terry Gilliam’s 1995 sci-fi, Twelve Monkeys, with the 1962 short film it was inspired by, La Jetée, by French filmmaker Chris Marker, specifically how Gilliam took a seed from the short and grew it into something larger, grander and in the end—completely different.
