Movie Review by MarkSchitts
June 23rd, 2018

Meet The Greatest Liar In The World

Back in 1989 "The Adventures Of Baron Munchausen" was a $46 million production that totally bombed at the box office, making back only $8 million of its initial costs.

Well - Watching this elaborately staged comedy/adventure/fantasy film today (30 years later) - I really can't understand why it was such a dismal failure back then.

Directed by Terry Gilliam (in the Monty Python's style) - I found that this story about an 18th century German nobleman and adventurer (who was the greatest liar in the world) to be quite a visual treat with its many surreal, weird, and bizarre images and characters.

Yes. At times its story was clearly teetering on the ridiculous - But - Considering that this is a pre-CGI presentation - I, personally, recommend it to anyone who likes to watch some over-the-top cinematic eccentricity once in a while.
