“Cassandra in Greek legend, you recall, was condemned to know the future but to be disbelieved when she foretold it. Hence the agony of foreknowledge combined with the impotence to do anything about it.”
Watched Twelve Monkeys (#25 on the film4 list). Never ever seen it before. It was so freaking good I did a little cry when it had finished.
Think Science Fiction Noir, which seems to be Brucey’s fave (if you’ve seen Looper as well, you’ll see some similarities).
Lots of references throughout to time travel & memory. And lots of people trying to convince people that bad things are going to happen..
And of course, people not listening until it is too late. And those people even questioning themselves but ultimately being right.
Anyway. I LOVE LOVE LOVED it and am ashamed that I haven’t seen it before now.
