12 Monkeys

Don't you just love Terry Gilliam? And, in this case, Brad Pitt and Bruce Willis? 2035 is just the place for Gilliam to begin. And, no matter where he begins, once he takes off we're all in for a trip. This film is full of normal things like time travel, netherworlds, holocausts, torture, deadly viruses, and all those wonderful aspects of our immediate future.

Of course, it's a comedy. But it's also a thriller. Sanity and madness create a solid foundation for the way you'll feel when you leave the theatre. Inspired by the French film La Jetee, scenarist Chris Marker and madman Gilliam have produced a fabulous fanfare for a new age. Superb points on all scores.
