First of all, , even though I consider Terry Gilliam one of the most interesting directors in the world, I have noticed that I have actually sometimes a hard time to really connect with his movies because they are very often so surrealist and so over-the-top.

"Watched: January 9, 2020. Director: Terry Gilliam Starring: Jeff Bridges as Jack Robin Williams as Parry Mercedes Ruehl as Anne Amanda Plummer as Lydia What a bizarre film. Indeed, a very "Terry Gilliam film"...! It has been in my watch list for a while, and I thought I'd give it a watch. Plus, I'm a fan of Jeff Bridges, so it was a no brainer. I found the story to be quite touching.I love a good transformation story. Robin Williams was amazing as a wounded homeless man. I was also im"

"One of the best parables for the movie's namesake I've seen. Williams and Bridges make a great team in another fantastically weird Terry Gilliam movie. "
