I have been meaning to share If We Don’t Remember Me for a while now. It is a gallery of living, moving movie stills (or GIFs, in Internet speak). IWDRM has found a way to maximize the art of the movie still: it is no longer just a still image, but a living encapsulation of a brief moment in time. Watch endlessly, the moment before Travis Bickle snaps, or notice a sense of humor you didn’t notice before in Sergio Leone’s films. Some are funny and endearing, others are subtle and almost moving. In between my viewing of videos of cats morphing into croissants and the dog from “The Artist” skateboarding (is there anything this dog can’t do?), there is something subtle and quiet to be addicted to on the Internet.
I don’t think I need to say much more, I am now going to let a few of my favorite stills from the site speak for themselves:
|The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou|
|The Good, the Bad and the Ugly|
|2001: A Space Odyssey|
