It is very rare when American filmmakers are allowed (and allow themselves) to get so visualy imaginative. Given the disjointed nature of the plot, the audience is required to totally suspend their disbelief. And if, like me, you allow yourself, you will be spirited to a world that doesn't need to make sense, but does deliver true wonderment. If anything, its worth it just to see Uma Thurman play Botticcelli's Venus... cherubs and all.

Though this film was buried, this is Terry Gilliam at his most imaginative with dual characters, amazing sets, a great story and lots of wonder. The plot may be confusing the first time around, but watch again and it all makes sense.

"The Adventures Of Baron Munchausen" by Yojimbo

An ageing adventurer infamous for his tall tales volunteers to help a French town besieged by a Turkish army. The Adventures Of Baron Munchausen is unmistakably a Terry Gilliam film. It is a feast of creative visuals that hark from before the days of CGI that is lavish in its invention and meticulous in its hand-crafted detail in a way that is no longer seen in modern cinema. Unfortunately the lavishness of its production meant that its budget spiralled ever more out of control meaning that Munchausen will ever be remembered as one of the great flops which is rather unfair as the film does have plenty to commend it. It has a fine and characterful cast including some greats of stage and comedy, the afore-mentioned beautiful production design and the opening and closing stages of the story ...
