5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic, if a little simplistic in its philosophy, 26 Aug. 2014
This review is from: The Zero Theorem (DVD)
Other reviewers have stated that, for those of us who think about the 'Big' Questions, this film doesn't bring anything new to the table. I'd agree with that, I just don't think it detracts from the film's quality.

If you consider all the other films that that exhalt patronisingly simple messages like 'love is the answer' or 'family will always be there for you', The Zero Theorem is a relatively thoughtful and multi-layered piece of art.

Perhaps the star of the film is the production value - made on a shoestring by Hollywood standards, it has all the style and depth of Gilliam at his best (the one exception being Tilda Swinton's ROM-based psychotherapy). And, like the best of Gillliam's work, it has so many great touches that you're unlikely to catch them all with one viewing.

The Zero Theorem isn't for everyone but for those with the patience it can easily be ranked alongside The Fisher King, Brazil and 12 Monkeys.
