My favourite Gilliam

My favourite Terry Gilliam film, I find it as much fun today as I did when I first saw it on video back in the Eighties. It being a Gilliam film it looks great: the composition of shots, the set design, the costumes, they all contribute to the feeling of magic and wonder that has eluded so many of the films of the CGI age. The knight in shining armour bursting of the wardrobe, the duel between Agamemnon and the minotaur in ancient Greece, the Fortress of Ultimate Darkness being revealed behind a shattered skyline... fantastic visuals soaked in magic. And that cast; Craig Warnock is good as the child protagonist Kevin, and David Rappaport suitably charismatic as the leader of the diminutive time-travelling miscreants, but the film has a series of cameos to die for: Ian Holm as Napoleon, John Cleese as Robin Hood, Michael Plain as a lovesick loser (twice!), Sean Connery as Greek warrior-king Agamemnon, and Sir Ralph Richardson as the Supreme Being. But the stand-out amongst that embarrassment of riches is David Warner as Evil. He just steals the show every time he's on screen, he's just so good. Arrow's Blu-ray is packed with interviews with various members of cast and crew. The picture is good, it's not been digitally smoothed as far as I can see, with noticeable grain present, particularly in the effects shots. I don't think it's ever going to look better on a standard Blu-ray. As you expect from Arrow, there is a colour booklet about the film included, plus a reversable Blu-ray sleeve. This is a great package for a magical movie.
