I have always been intrigued by Terry Gilliam’s work, even though not all his movies have convinced me though and since this movie was Terry Gilliam's first official directing credit, I was really eager to check it out. Indeed, up to that point, Gilliam was working as a member of the Monty Python, it was his first stand-alone feature and that was pretty obvious. I mean, you can see that even tho... read more

“I have always been intrigued by Terry Gilliam’s work, even though not all his movies have convinced me though and since this movie was Terry Gilliam's first official directing credit, I was really eager to check it out. Indeed, up to that point, Gilliam was working as a member of the Monty Python, it was his first stand-alone feature and that was pretty obvious. I mean, you can see that even though he was already a visionary, especially concerning the visual style and his trademark dark humor, Gilliam was still searching himself and, on top of that, as usual, he didn't have really a big budget at his disposal and many of the scenes were shot in a single take, as there was not enough time or money to afford multiple tries.  Still, even though it didn’t really blow me away, it remains a” read more

"First viewing - June 5th Until The Zero Theorem comes out, this was the last Gilliam film I hadn't seen yet. And to be honest, it's the only Gilliam film I've seen that disappointed me. Now don't get me wrong, it's got some spectacularly funny moments along the way and it's pretty memorable as a whole. But the problem is that Michael Palin is just not a strong enough lead to carry the entire film, despite the fact he's very well-suited for his role here. And the fact that the only other recogni"

"06/02/2014 Jabberwockyssa on omat pythonmaisuutensa ja vastapainona omat täydelliset lapsuksensa ja aivopierunsa. Huikeintahan elokuvassa on rakkauden pitkän oppimäärän oppitunti ja huikea monsteri."

"Fairly amusing satire comedy by Terry Gilliam. It's true that it is similar to the Python classic The Holy Grail. It's not a Python movie, but it's got the Python humour and a couple of Python cameos. Michael Palin who plays the lead role of Dennis Cooper does a fine job. These days Jabberwocky is unappreciated by many Python fans but it's well worth seeking out if you like their brand of comedy."

A Complete review of Terry Gilliam's work (16 movies items)

" Cast : Michael Palin What was it about? A young peasant, with no interest in adventure or fortune, is mistaken as the kingdom's only hope when a horrible monster threatens the countryside. My two cents: It is Terry Gilliam's first official directing credit. It is a decent watch but nothing really amazing, above all compared to what he has done later on. As usual, Gilliam didn't have really a big budget at this disposal and many of the scenes were shot in a single take, as there was not enou"
