La Jetée

I must say, I actually did like this film. Initially when I realized it was only going to be still photography I thought it was going to drag on and be boring. This was not the case. I mean, the photograph was so captivating. The way the photographs were composed, it was just stunning. Especially the stills of the scientists, they were eerie and made them look crazy, which I guess was the point being that they were torturing the man.

I also liked the emphasis on the sounds around the prisoner. In a way it we get to listen in his perspective. As he is being experimented on/tortured all he is hears is his own heartbeat and the incomprehensible german of the scientists when they observe him. I like that the hissed german is not translated for the viewer, so we are left not knowing what the experimenters are really doing, just like the prisoner.

As for the story itself, I like how it is left up to your interpretation. The way I say it was that the prisoner wasn’t actually time traveling, he was having lucid dreams. In a way, whatever drug they were injecting him with allowed him to escape reality through this dreams and travel back to a happier time, when he was in love. When he goes into the future, he is reminded that it isn’t real and he is thenceforth killed, not allowing him to enjoy his dreams. So he is stuck, in a depressing place. We are unsure if the prisoner is really killed for he might still be sitting the makeshift hammock in the dingy underground holding place.
