Mystical and thought provoking. Almost as good as The Matrix.

Wonderfully acted nonsense.

A few days ago, a motorbike slammed into me as I was crossing a street in Saigon at the intersection of McDonalds and Dien Bien Phu Street. As I lay on the street staring at the sky I immediately realized I violated the rule of crossing busy streets in Saigon: walk, don't think. I was ...Read more

Would not recommend this flick to anyone. I watched for 15 minutes or so before I had to bail on it. I'd have to be mentally disturbed before I could watch more than that. JMO

I liked it on a purely emotional level.

Shakyamuni kinda figured that out some 2400 years ago.

I think of it as a filim for Generation app that wasn't around for his Monty Python or first post Python stuff. It features trademarks of this era ," street art", handheld electronic devices a touch of animeish set design but I don't think he was able to create characters to care about in ...Read more

It tries to be profound but ultimately seemed kind of empty.

I loved this movie and will have to watch it again. I watched Brazil by Terry Gilliam many many times and each time was a pleasant journey. This will fall into that same category. This was actually the second time I watched this movie. The first was too hard to follow and figure out so it ...Read more

I didn't enjoy this at all. I stopped watching after 45 minutes.

elaborate but tedious.

An episode of Black Mirror that was unnecessarily long and without the interesting O. Henry-esque ending

Good design. Good acting. Weird script and ultimately without meaning. Very frustrating, and nihilistic.

Would I be wrong if I called this film a comedy rather than drama?

I'm baffled by the lackluster reception of this film by the critical establishment. It's nearly perfect. Every actor delivers a spot on and unique take of their respective characters. Christoph Waltz, Tilda Swinton and Melanie Thierry performances are vulnerable, complex and nuanced. The ...Read more

Yes, good people, but with the burden of a mediocre script....
There have been many beautiful cinemas, but so many have been just that, lacking
other elements... this cinema did not fit either european, or US criteria for
a successful accomplishment...

Not Gilliam's best work. The design and cinematography was good though. I think it could have been more better from what I experienced from his past films.

The film was not what I thought it would be; about space and outer space. I could not watch it.

Not my favorite Gilliam movie but I thoroughly enjoyed it. The production design/art direction was absolutely wonderful. I love a good dystopian story and the cast is great, especially Christoph Waltz and Tilda Swinton (who is always amazing).

could not get through this. the costume and set design were beautiful though.

A somewhat sarcastic and very dark view of a dystopian surveillance state, goverened by virtual reality and mind control chaos at every level. . .somewhat akin to being trapped in Times Square and a Las Vegas casino simultaneously. . .the ultimate nightmare. . .especially for a brilliant ...Read more
