This evening, Elise Moore and David Fiore accompany a pair of distraught time troopers through the Foucauldian looking glass, wondering the whole time whether any of this stuff is really happening.
Our first film is Terry Gilliam's justly-celebrated 12 Monkeys (1995), starring Bruce Willis, Madeleine Stowe, and Brad Pitt. Yes, it's based on Chris Marker's La jetée, but we'll get to that one some other time, okay?
The second item on our double-consciousness double billing was suggested by friend of the show Siskoid. We were quite impressed with The Jacket (2005), which had somehow flown under our time sensors. It was directed by John Maybury and it stars Adrien Brody, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Keira Knightly, Kris Kristofferson, Kelly Lynch, Brad Renfro, and Daniel Craig. Also, it was filmed in Ormstown, Québec, a place David knows well. For those listening at home, the final tune wasn't sung by Bryan Ferry (as we suppose on the cast), it's actually Iggy Pop!
