It was Freak who told me about King Arthur. How he got this round table, and how he got the bravest knights, and the whole world to sit at that table. You will be brothers, said King Arthur. And you will fight for all those who ask for help. You will be gentle to the weak, but terrible to the wicked. It was Freak who told me about King Arthur. It was Freak who told me everything.

This movie is a real sleeper. I heard it was pretty good from a friend. My friend really understated.
Every thing about this movie is thoroughly enjoyable. The story is enthralling. The cinematography and special effects are wonderful. The acting is, well Harry Dean Stanton and Gena Rowlands do their usual great job and the two boys who play Max and the Freak (Kevin), Elden Ratliff and Kieran Culkin are impressive. Meat Loaf and Gillian Anderson are a trip to watch and Sharon Stone showed me acting that I didn't think she had in her. All in all a cast that does a great job.
The sound track is really something. I thoroughly enjoyed the music. If there was a small impediment in the film, it was a story that could of played on sympathy, but I don't think it was harmful. I've seen this storyline before, but the way it was done I didn''t care.
