Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Nothing much happens, but you can't easily tear your eyes away from it.
Fresh: A lavish fairy tale for bright children of all ages.
Fresh: A fitting final installment in Terry Gilliam's trilogy begun with Time Bandits and continued with Brazil.
Fresh: The sheer volume and invention of Gilliam's visual largess sets him apart, and his wit operates for the most part at a dangerously sophisticated level.
Best Terry Gilliam Movie, in my opinion
This is one of my favorite films by this director. I know many enthusiasts will note Brazil as his best, but this film is quite amazing. Brazil is great and dark. This film is playful and the darker moments are balanced with levity. If you like a film that embraces a surreal landscape, artful absurdity, and capitulates into a rare form of sublimity.. this film is for you.
Over the rainbow OUTRAGEOUS
Amusing and realistically cast and costumed and coifed characters. It's an over the top insanity.
Whimsical fables portrayed so authentically you think you must be tripping.
