To be honest, it has been ages since I have seen this movie and I should definitely re-watch it at some point. 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. Well, even though there was... 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

Movies I Watched in June 2020 (34 movies items)

" 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"

"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"
