I saw it at the Pacific Cinematheque here in Vancouver a few years
back, with "Je T'Aime, Je T'aime," my favourite time-travel movie.
The connection was that La Jetee inspired the latter film, not to
mention 12 Monkeys.
I always refer to "Je t'aime, Je t'aime," along with "Strain
Andromeda The," whenever film fanboys try to convince me that Memento
is in any way clever.
