Christ Marker died yesterday, and I’m really sad about it, because he was definitely one of my favorite living filmmakers. Until he died.
For those of you who didn’t go to graduate school, or don’t have intellectual pretensions (like me), Marker was the director of films such as La Jetée and Sans Soleil. He was also a travel writer, a militant, a hermit, and an avid lover of cats.
His films should still be available on Netflix. Check them out.
