How Many Films Can You ID From “60 Years of Cinema (in 40 Seconds)”?
Thanks to the Daily MUBI for tipping us off to this video, which compiles footage from movies from 1912 until 1970 in the span of 40 seconds. That's a lot of movies in not a lot of time, so as you'd expect the flood of images rush right past you. (We're pretty sure this thing might cause seizures if you're not careful.) Still, we bravely tried to figure out how many films we could name. We're pretty sure we saw "Vertigo," "The Philadelphia Story," "Woodstock" and "2001: A Space Odyssey" in there, but now our eyeballs are ready to explode.
