Hypnotic Gifs, From Criterion Films

Ah animated gifs, you were quite possibly the most annoying things on the internet for several years, back when everyone was on Geocities, and eventually Myspace.

Yesterday, Roger over at BadAss Digest highlighted a new Tumblr Blog that has some of the most hypnotizing Gifs, that I can’t stop looking at. I think what makes them so special is their minimalist approach. Some of them are very subtle, and you really have to try to find what exactly is animated about them. Others are just so hilarious that I had to share them with you.

I’ve gone through the blog, If We Don’t, Remember Me, and pulled out a bunch of the films from the Criterion Collection. I’m linking to each post if you click on the images, so you can help support this blogger by giving them some of your click traffic.

Which is your favorite? What films/scenes should he highlight in future posts?
