Jonathan Rosenbaum 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.
Variety Staff The Fisher King has two actors at the top of their form, and a compelling, well-directed and well-produced story.
David Ansen 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.
Geoff Andrew Scary, touching, often hilarious, this modern fairytale is surprisingly enchanting.
Desson Thomson A modern epic that fuses myth with hard-edged reality, it's a one-of-a-kind, thoroughly engaging experience.
