    Visually impressive, frequently pretentious, and extremely fluid as narrative (the 137 minutes sail by effortlessly), this mythic comedy-drama presents Gilliam as half seer, half snake-oil salesman and defies you to sort out which is which.

    The Fisher King has two actors at the top of their form, and a compelling, well-directed and well-produced story.

    Working within the constraints of a big studio film has brought out Gilliam's best: he's become a true storyteller and a wonderful director of actors. This time he delights not only the eye but the soul.

    Scary, touching, often hilarious, this modern fairytale is surprisingly enchanting.

    Name user

    A modern epic that fuses myth with hard-edged reality, it's a one-of-a-kind, thoroughly engaging experience.

    Name user

    The Fisher King is a disorganized, rambling and eccentric movie that contains some moments of truth, some moments of humor, and many moments of digression.
