This review is from: The Fisher King [DVD]  (DVD)
What do you expect from a Terry Gilliam film? Something inventive, an entertaining but thought-provoking take on the human condition? A meaningful story shot with the imagination and cheerful dismissal to reality, which ironically brings the movie closer to home?
I saw 'Brazil' a few months ago, and didn't think cinema could get any better. I bought 'Fisher King' with the expectation that it would be good, but dominated by the huge personalities of Robin Williams and Jeff Bridges. I didn't expect anything close to what I'd seen in 'Brazil'. But, contrary to what I'd expected the big on-screen personalities work in perfect harmony to this wacky world Gilliam presented us with.
A perfect script, a perfect cast, a perfect director. Perfect.
