Described by esteemed filmmaker Terry Gilliam as the final part of his dystopian satire trilogy, following Brazil and Twelve Monkeys, The Zero Theorem is an uneven endeavour that feels thematically outdated despite its futuristic setting. Gilliam's visceral prowess constantly bolsters the fable, which follows Christoph Waltz's corporate worker bee Qohen as he tries to solve a mathematical formula that could unlock the meaning of life. Clearly The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy was out of print.
Increasingly reclusive, Qohen has to contend with his patronising boss Joby (David Thewlis) and the soul-sapping machinations of the 'Management' and Matt Damon's amusingly attired boss. But the apparently amorous affections of a mysterious femme fatale called Bainsley (Mélanie Thierry) pose a huge conundrum to the increasingly beleaguered drone.
