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.
