I forgot about The Fisher King. I don't have it on my list. Must be because I gave up on it, so I didn't count it as having seen. Terry Gilliam is really not my bag.

Gilliam directed the animated sequences only. Terry Jones directed the live action film.

I know he's flawed, but he was a Python and those boys run deep with me. Some of the best times of my life just spent quoting Python sketches and Gilliam films back and forth with friends.

"What should have been an enjoyable 90 minutes of nubile, high-school flesh meeting a frenzy of blood-caked blades, becomes instead an exploitational and complex parable of the conflicting demands of agrarianism and artistry. I voted a miss."

Time Bandits (1981) 65/100 - Well, it only took me 39 years to getting around to watching this film, which is surprising because I'm a big fan of Gilliam's work. Had I watched it back in the early 80's, I probably would have liked it much more. But knowing what was to come from him, this viewing left me indifferent to it's place in Gilliam's canon. He's taking that big step away from his past success with Monty Python and charting a course towards his creative destiny. But, he still has one foot anchored rigidly on the Python landscape. As I got past the halfway point in the film, I wondered what kind of film it would have been had Gilliam made it after Brazil, where he reached his zenith. Nothing in that film could be even remotely associated with Monty Python and I think that this earlier film would have been better served had it sunk its roots in Gilliam's single minded creative genius, post-Python and all the tropes associated with that seminal comedy troupe.
