The Fisher King (1991)



Reviews and Comments

When a film is this original, this far from the mainstream, it's sometimes difficult to review. The Fisher King is not a perfect film, yet how can I hold its flaws against it in light of a valiant and mostly successful effort to create something fresh and original? Suffice it to say that this Terry Gilliam film should more than please those tired of mainstream movie cliches but not high brow or boring enough to want to endure the stereotypical "art house" film.
