Homework # 8

The use of cinematic time travel in La Jetee is very brilliant. The impact this film had on a lot of viewers is massive. I have seen 12 Monkeys before and I can see where the influence of La Jetee comes in. La Jetee is significant because it showed the impact of a rotten Paris town after World War II. It  highlights the absurdity and tragedies of what war is like and how it can destroy a town. Similarly to La Jetee, 12 Monkeys shows what the world is like in a future Earth. It displays the horrible coming of a disease that wipes out more than 90% of the human population. In the movie, James Cole (Bruce Willis’ character) travels back to a World War II time period and injures his leg. I’ve seen a few other time traveling movies like the Terminator, and a classic Back To The Future.
