Excellent, Excellent Movie Gifs

Auteur gif-master Gus Mantle serves up some prime digital artifacts with this ongoing series of classic cinema and blockbuster few-second vignettes. They’re a bit less shticky than those animated neon sign gifs we so enjoyed earlier this summer, but they’re very, very well done and essential, as film nerd Internet crap goes. Ooh, the tension in Walter’s gun-wielding arm and the nervous rustle of the bowling alley! Ooh, the repetitive, hypnotic nature of Patrick Bateman’s jump-roping, summarizing pivotal points of his ritualistic existence. Very nice.
