One of the more unconventional remakes in movie history, this 1995 sci-fi-action hybrid took its inspiration from “La Jetée,” Chris Marker’s wildly experimental short from 1962, which told its story entirely in moody, black-and-white still photos. Terry Gilliam’s “Monkeys” expands the ideas and themes of “La Jetée” into the story of a time-traveling prisoner (Bruce Willis) sent on a fact-finding mission from the post-apocalyptic present into the recent past, delving vigorously into conundrums of cause and effect when the prisoner finds himself drawn into events he was meant only to observe. Shot in Gilliam’s customary cockeyed style and featuring Willis and Brad Pitt playing wildly against type, it’s a film that’s both odd and oddly satisfying.
