This is an easy one. La Jet√©e is a french film from 1962 directed by Chris Marker (probably best known for writing 12 Monkeys) and narrated by Jean N√©groni. It’s a cyberpunk post-apocalyptic story about the survivors attempting to save themselves from their own past with time travel. Shades of The Matrix and shades of 12 Monkeys abound. The things that make this film stand out from others are its’ length (less than half an hour) and the fact that the entire film is comprised of still images shown in sequence. Well, so is any film if you think about it, but La Jet√©e is literally a sequence of still photographs, the camera lingering on each one for the length needed to tell its’ part of the narrative.

There isn’t one, not really. At worst maybe a film I used to love has dulled to apathy. I hate very few films, to be honest. I certainly don’t hate anything I used to love.
