There is always something special in the first cinematic feature of a certain Director. This is not the first film of Terry Gilliam but it is the first movie he does by himself. It has that "Pythonesque" feeling in It and we have a splendid performance by Michael Palin and a few funny cameos by Terry Jones and Gilliam himself. I really think that Gilliam is one of the very few human beings in this planet that can turn a short nonsense poem into an feature film. I personally loved the monster, It was rather close to the famous illustration by Lewis Carroll.
Give it a try, It's Gilliam, goddamit!
