That was weird, but a nice one to watch.

Good film but not for everyone. This being a Terry Gilliam film, you know it's going to be a) fantastic in a classic sense, b) complicated with many red herrings and original characters, and c) something you can watch more than once.

terry gilliam always delivers. i thought the story in this was a little weak. seemed like it may not have had a clear goal. was it about val or about tony? neither was fleshed out as fully as i would have liked and both left me kinda empty. that said, there was a cohesive enough plot that i didnt feel like this was only an eye candy movie. the scenery porn in this was amazing. i wish there had been more. gilliams bigger than life sets always give me the greatest thrill. he has the knack for making the absurd seem common place.
