Album Review

Director Terry Gilliam's update of the Brothers Grimm legend casts the two siblings as a pair of self-proclaimed "Ghostbusters" who trick villagers out of their hard-earned money. Gilliam, who intended to have Bosnian folk-rock legend Goran Bregovic score the film, opted instead for the more mainstream style — probably at the studio's behest — of Italian composer Dario Marianelli (Pride and Prejudice, V for Vendetta).

One wishes that Gilliam, a true maverick whose failures are as legendary as his triumphs, would have left the safe route for the Michael Bay's of the film world and gone with Bregovic.
