Terry Gilliam's loose remake of the Chris Marker sci-fi, silent short is considered to be one of his greatest on many levels. The story of a time-traveling prisoner, Bruce Willis and the truth he unravels is really a thoughtful and intelligent puzzle to be worked out. Brad Pitt gives one of his best and most complex performances and Bruce Willis is subdued and human. Too thoughtful for the popcorn crowd, this movie has largely been ignored and under appreciated by the movie watching public. Not only is it worth watching, but its worth re-watching.

1995 2 hours and 10 minutes Rated R
Written By David and Janet Peoples Directed by Terry Gilliam
