i recently watched La Jetée and Sans Soleil, two Chris Marker films released together on dvd by criterion:



(i was delighted to see macguffin's La Jetée avatar only a matter of days after i watched the film!)

both deal in amazing ways with time and memory,


La Jetée in the form of a 27 minute photomontage sci-fi tragedy about a time travel experiment.


and Sans Soleil as a documentary made of transcendent scenes and images filmed in Japan, Guinea-Bissau, Iceland, Paris, and San Francisco. an extremely moving exploration of the fractal nature of memory.

i wish i had seen these when i was younger. recommended to everyone.

i've only seen those two as well but they are both fantastic.
i'd recommend this as well:


“The myth by no means finds its adequate objectification in the spoken word. The structure of the scenes and the visible imagery reveal a deeper wisdom than the poet himself is able to put into words and concepts” – Friedrich Nietzsche
