mr. foot splat steps up.
the director of this was the counterpart to what david byrne or prince or roger waters were in music. normally for movies.. that mentality does not lend it self to promised money profit. it does offer the possible return on story innovation.
A Cult Classic That Still Holds Up
- Todd Wright
Okay, it ain't gonna sweep Oscars night, but it's hard to beat the whimsical escapism that TIME BANDITS offers. Most of the fun is just spotting the raft of famous folk who drift in and out of this film. What I admire most is that this is early Terry Gilliam stretching his wings, so to speak, and you see so many elements that turn up later in movies like THE FISHER KING, BRAZIL, 12 MONKEYS, and BARON MUNCHAUSEN. Its "plot" is at times Pythonesque, but you'll still smile here and there enough to keep watching.
An original, imaginative children's film. A young boy is kidnapped by a group of time traveling dwarves who possess a map stolen by Richardson's "Supreme Being." Director Gilliam and co-screenwriter Palin relish in the opportunity to twist history, but the story gets predictable at times and will give parents light chuckles. The film is hilarious with splendid visuals and star cameo's from Palin, Cleese, Connery and Duvall. I give it a 3.5/5.
