Director Terry Gilliam’s groundbreaking science fiction satire is an anachronistic masterpiece. Winner of the Los Angeles Film Critics Award for Best Picture, Best Director and Best Screenplay (Gilliam, Charles McKeown and theater legend Tom Stoppard). Inspired by George Orwell’s 1984 and Fritz Lang’s METROPOLIS, this darkest of comedies pits Everyman Jonathan Pryce against a world of crushing conformity, pursuing elusive love Kim Greist. Featuring fellow Python Michael Palin as upwardly mobile Jack Lint and Robert De Niro as an outlaw heating engineer. Its jaw-dropping retro-futuristic design helped give birth to the steampunk genre. 1985, 142min, 35mm courtesy of Universal Pictures. Terry Gilliam’s cut.
