It's interesting to say the least. At first it might seem to be heading in a quite weird direction and be somewhat crazy, but then you'll understand it is going in a great direction and it's totally crazy! Maintains the themes of magic, illusionment and disillusionment very well and has that great sense of humor only Gilliam seems to manage. Jonathan Pryce is amazing as the Don! Wonderful movie!
