In an effort to promote the opening weekend of this film, Director Terry Gilliam crashed the ticket line for The Daily Show (1996). He signed autographs, told jokes, and took photos with fans, holding a sign proclaiming: "Studio-less Film Maker, Family to Support, Will Direct for Food". He is quoted as saying, "This is the state of independent film making. You got to get out on the street and beg again. We have no shame anymore, just out on the streets hustling. The first weekend is everything, if it doesn't do well the first weekend, it dies." See more »

I have never been so terrorized while watching a movie. The tension in this film is so greatly created but it makes you want to leap out of your seat, dash down the aisle, and never think about kissing again. I felt the need to take a long, hot shower after this film, as it left almost a pile of dirt on each my shoulders. When coming out of movies, I can usually express right away the emotional turnout the film provided but this left me bewildered, stunned, shocked, more adjectives. The art direction was probably some of the most beautiful I've seen, but it's hard to appreciate a film when you keep turning away and groaning in agony at what could happen next. I suggest seeing the film, as it is masterfully done and quite beautiful, but be prepared to be repulsed and saddened by all that you see.
