Never underestimate what a difference watching a film on the big screen can make.
Tonight I went to see a film I NEVER thought I would get to see on the big screen because of all the legal wranglings it’s had to go through in the last year.
I have managed to see it on a German released DVD that I had to scrabble around until I found the English version on the disk, and because this preview showing with a recorded Q+A with director Terry Gilliam and Actor Jonathan Pryce was showing at a cinema that is a 45 minute drive away, in the evening, and between two 12.5 hour shifts at work, I very nearly didn’t go!
I am so glad I did!
I loved the film on DVD, but it takes on a whole new life on the big screen.
It is absolutely stunning, and crazy, and if you are a Terry Gilliam fan, you are absolutely going to love this film.
