Watch An Entire Movie
Squeezed Into A Single GIF
Because Why Not

You like GIFs. You like movies. How about entire movies compressed into GIFs that will turn your brain to scrambled eggs and possibly hurt your eyeballs?
Enter the newest bizarre subreddit on Reddit: r/fullmoviegifs. It's a community of GIF wizards taking feature-length films and compressing them into 40-second versions of movies in hyperspeed, from opening to closing credits.
The idea was born earlier this week in a comment thread on r/gifs, when user ydnab2 asked for a subreddit dedicated to full-movie GIFs. User mat01ss pointed out the inactive subreddit r/featurelengthgifs and then took the initiative to make r/fullmoviegifs, which at the time of this writing had 2,535 subscribers after 2 days of existence. matt01ss is the primary contributor to the subreddit.
So what are these GIFs like?

For a movie so focused on psychedelics, it's only fitting that this GIF makes you feel like you're on some.
It's completely fine to admit you still cried during the opening montage, even in fast forward.
