Well, even though there was still some weird stu... read more

Ambitious enough for several films, and sometimes it feels like three of them stitched together at times, The Fisher King may just be Terry Gilliam’s greatest film, Brazil is a strong(er) contender in my opinion. The Fisher King gives us so much to consider: the homeless, mental illness, redemption, Arthurian legend, show-biz, two love affairs, comedy. Somehow, I found it all working together an... read more

" Date: 6/21/2020 Viewed: Amazon Prime Rental Re-Watch Note: I haven't seen this movie since I was a kid and I think it holds up very well. I almost forgot how young Jeff Bridges looks in this movie lol. I'm going to keep my thoughts short because I don't have anything new to add seeing that this is a popular 90s movie that most people have seen. I still really enjoy the story and characters that this movie has. It's a good story about finding redemption and love in my opinion. I also like that"
