Reviews
Mine: Too long. Too stupid. Never has the wit of many other Terry Gilliam films.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Expansive, emotional fable of a smart-aleck, self-absorbed radio personality driven into a deep funk by an unexpected tragedy--and his unlikely rescue by a strange street vigilante who's in desperate need of rescue himself. Unusual and absorbing, both comic and tender, this takes the viewer on quite a journey. Ruehl won Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her role as Bridges' girlfriend. Look fast for Kathy Najimy. Written by Richard LaGravenese. Super 35.

Clearly, the message and beauty of this film was lost on our dear webmaster....but that still gives me chance to show what I think of it. This movie is EXCELLENT. The message is very timely and just poignant. ANYONE who enjoys touching and deep films should rent or purchase The Fisher King. I think Williams is great, Bridges is what he usually is, overacting but good, and the rest of the movie is just a great tale.
