Time Bandits

Query: would eccentric be the best word to describe Terry Gilliam’s films?

Sometimes to a fault, and sometimes to joyous effect, Gilliam’s work is always distinctly his. And Time Bandits is a combination of both his best and worst tendencies. The episodic film is only engaging in small parts, a total bore in others, but consistently trying to create something original.

Since I have always been interested in Terry Gilliam’s work, I was really eager to check this flick.

Indeed, like many other movies coming from this interesting director, I thought that it was visually impressive but I actually had a rather hard time to connect with the story. I don't know, I guess, the story was not bad but, somehow I didn’t think it was really entertaining and I was rather bored from time to time while watching this flick. On the other hand, it has been a while since I have seen this movie so I should definitely re-watch it at some point to make up my mind for good about the damned thing. 4 years later, Gilliam would come with up ‘Brazi” read more

The story follows a young boy as he joins a group of dwarfs who slip into various times and steal goods from each of them. Along the way he meets a cavalcade of stars dressing up as various historical and mythical figures. All the while they’re trying to escape from the Supreme Being and find their ship. It’s a bit of a mess to be honest, but it does offer up minor pleasures.

"Like much of Terry Gilliam's work, Time Bandits is brimming with a truly bizarre and unique brand of cinematic imagination. The settings and costumes are totally on par, syncing well with its kooky sense of humor. Nothing about it is particularly profound - in fact, the entire concept itself could be rather forgettable. It is, however, worthwhile entertainment, and very fun. "

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

" Cast : John Cleese, Sean Connery, Shelley Duvall, Ian Holm, Michael Palin, Jim Broadbent What was it about? A young boy accidently joins a band of dwarves as they jump from time-period to time-period looking for treasure to steal. My two cents: It is another cult classic by Mr Gilliam. Personally, even though it was visually impressive, I didn't really enjoy it very much. I don't know, the story was allright but it was not really entertaining and I was bored pretty often watching this flic"

"There's the film's ending, I am not going to give it away, but given everything that the main character goes through in the movie, it's the most harshest thing imaginable to happen to a kid in a movie. Buy hey, the parents were warned not to touch it."
