The Fisher King 1991

From Amazon: Arthurian mythology and modern day decay seem perfect complements to each other in this Terry Gilliam drama/comedy/fantasy. Shock jock Jack Lucas (Jeff Bridges) makes an off-handed radio remark that causes a man to go on a killing spree, leaving Lucas unhinged with guilt. Lucas's later, chance meeting with Parry (Robin Williams), a homeless man suffering from dementia, gets him involved in the unlikely quest for the Holy Grail. The rickety, and patently unrealistic stand that insanity is just a wonderful place to be, and that the homeless are all errant knights, wears awfully thin, but there are numerous moments of sad grace and violent...

The Fisher King Movie Review by James (9/29/2013)

This is one of the best stories that deals with themes of redemption and humanity. With 1991's "The Fisher King" directed by Terry Gilliam, we get an absolutely fantastic cast from Robin Williams and Jeff Bridges, as well as exploring and visiting some very adult themes. The movie is perfect in every way; almost everything...

The Fisher King Movie Review by BillyBob (4/27/2009)

Yawn!.... Viewing the flick THE FISHER KING is very much like having to endure the torment of watching an utterly terrible baseball game where you know what the dismal outcome of the game is going to be long before it's over 'cause everything is stacked against the Hollywood Team right from the start.

And it goes, pretty...

The Fisher King Movie Review by Jesse (7/12/2007)

Just from watching most of the scenes in this film (ex. the burning red knight) you can tell that this is a Terry Gilliam film. Gilliam's style is quite evident in all of his films and this one is no exception. The funny thing is, Gilliam didn't write the screenplay or story for this film, Richard LaGravenese did....

The Fisher King Movie Review by Jessica Film Junkie (4/7/2007)

One of Terry Gilliam's best films is this story of a man losing his way in life (Jeff Bridges) and another man losing his mind because of the circumstances of his life (Robin Williams).

This is a story of male friendship amidst an uncaring world. It is a story of finding love among tragedy and regret. Above all, it...

The Fisher King Movie Review by Movie Addict (4/3/2007)

I was reading about the chocolate Jesus controversy yesterday and thinking about Tom Waits song "chocolate Jesus" - actually, singing it:

Well its got to be a chocolate Jesus
Make me feel good inside
Got to be a chocolate Jesus
Keep me satisfied

And there, on the Fisher King, was Tom Waits sitting in a wheelchair in...
