    Would I be correct in thinking that there’s one or two Terry Gilliam fans on this board?
    Excited much about Dr Parnassus?

    My top 5 Gilliam films (non-Python)
    1. Brazil
    2. The Fisher King
    3. Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas
    4. 12 Monkeys
    5. The Brothers Grimm / Baron Munchausen

    I really want to see the new film. Perhaps a London based G&T outing could be arranged?

    I’m very eager to see it, though that does have a lot to do with Tom Waits being in it.

    Jonathan Ross thought it was a bit of a mess but an unmissable one. You could describe pretty much every Gilliam film in that way, so I’m pleased with that and can’t wait to see it. If it’s better than Baron Munchausen then I’ll be happy.

    >4 – Lost In La Mancha

    Alright technically in this he’s less a director and really more of a star

    12 Monkeys is fucking awesome. One of the smartest sci-fi films ever.

    Interesting new poster I found on Den of Geek.

    Hellooo nurse! Another ginger cutie. And some other interesting stuff.

    I’m based in London. I might be up for that. (Thanks Karl, I missed that in all the other posts. Hee, hee.)

    I don’t like Lily Cole. She looks too uncomfortably like a weird overgrown child.

    Her face is a little strange, (which makes her fit the role all the better, I think). I think she is attractive though.

    The Fisher King is one of my all-time favorite movies. I put this on Netflix the other day and stayed up until the wee hours of the morning watching it. I don’t know why I don’t own it already. :/ I’m an idiot.

    I’m actually excited most of all about seeing Tom Waits being Mr Nick. I’ve been a fan of his music for a loooong time.

    Agreed. He’s one of my favourite artists, especially ‘Heart of Saturday Night’, ‘Heartattack & Vine’ and ‘Mule Variations’. One of the songs on our next album is written as a sort of tribute to Tom Waits. I can’t think of anyone better to play the Devil in this to be honest. Incidently, it’s worth looking at an artist called Martin Harley on his site or on youtube performing ‘Chocolate Jesus’. It’s approved by Waits and it fantastic.

    Thanks I’m going to check it out now.

    Well that was absolutely fantastic! I haven’t enjoyed a film that much for a long time.

    What a lovely idea!
    Either that or I need to enable the spellchecker on this thing.

    That film was absolutely bloody brilliant!
    When I first heard about Depp/Law/Farrell stepping into the Heath Ledger role to complete the movie I admit that I was a little bemused at how that would work. But it does work, seamlessly.

    I won’t say more for fear of spoiling anyone XD

    Anyone in the London area fancy going to see this on Orange Wednesday?
    Also, anyone with an Orange phone fancy giving us a 241 code? :o)

    Just got back from seeing it and it is fantastic and wonderfully surreal (and Tom Waits was great as always, I can’t think of anyone who would have been better in the role of Mr Nick).

    Tom Waits was just wonderful. Perfect.
    Christopher Plummer gves a hell of a performance too. How long is it since we’ve seen him in a leading role?

    There’s a nice little interview with Terry G on the BBC news site

    Is it bad that the main reason I want to see it is for the high concentration of hot? I KNOW Heath Ledger is dead, but… well, he was hot. Hell, even Christomer Plummer had a smouldering attractiveness about him in the Sound of Music…

    Depp and Law have always been a little too pretty for my taste, although I love Depp as an actor. Farrell is far more appealing. But the only time I’ve really fancied the the pants off Heath Ledger was in Brothers Grimm when he was just so deliciously geeky 8D

    #105093

    Law’s becoming more interesting as his looks age and move towards somethIng less pretty. He’s positively goggle-eyed and thinning in Breaking and Entering, and for the first time I found him really relatable. Strong performance and a good script helped, of course…

    #105097

    Ah, he’s pretty, way too poncy for me really but I like him in some films. Depp is just Depp, skinny as he may be, he’s just got something about him. And Heath Ledger in 10 Things I Hate About You… yes.

    Right, saw this tonight. It’s far from great, but it’s always a treat watching a Gilliam film as you can never quite be sure what you’ll be looking at next. That said it’s still some way from his best.

    Well, I’ve seen it now! It’s very pretty, but I didn’t really know what to think! What’s it based on? Might have to read that first.

    I wasn’t aware it was based on anything. It just seemed a nice excuse for Terry Gilliam to create some amazing visuals.

    Exclusive Scoop In Today’s Metro:

    Terry Gilliam is not as tall as Lily Cole

    #106886

    Ah thank God, I was worried for a moment there.

    I’ve just seen this, I thought it was great. Andrew Garfield is definitely the unsung hero of it and uncomfortably Johnny Depp is a better Ledger than Ledger.
