TOBY DAMMIT

(1969) In Fellini’s eerie segment of the Poe-based omnibus SPIRITS OF THE DEAD (Tre Passi Nel Delirio/Histoires Extraordinaires), Terence Stamp arrives in Rome to make a movie at Cinecittà, but finds he can't escape a final headache. Presented as part of Fellini 100, an international celebration of the director’s centennial year. Approx 44 min.

“Marvelous: A short movie, but a major one...a kind of postscript to La Dolce Vita, the picture of an exhausted, once beautiful person handing his soul over to the devil.”
– Vincent Canby, The New York Times

LA JETÉE

(1962). In the aftermath of World War 3, in the dark underground that’s apparently all that still exists, a recumbent man in heavy goggles travels back through time, ever searching for that one moment that will make it all clear — but what happens when he gets there? Marker’s half-hour masterpiece — “the story of a man marked by an image of his childhood” (re-made by Terry Gilliam as Twelve Monkeys with Bruce Willis!) — is told in a haunting series of stills, climaxing in “an extraordinary epiphany” (David Thompson, Time Out London). Approx. 33 min.
