I seem to be the only person who rates 12 Monkeys very highly.  If you've not seen it, I recommend watching 'Brazil', then 'The Fisher King' then 12 Monkeys. A very nice example of Gilliam's core themes, presented in a creative and unique way...

12 monkeys was excellent with Bruce Willis!

The Fisher King had Jeff Bridges and Robin Williams Two of my favorite actors.. It was also an excellent movie! Very much worth watching!




I think I saw Brazil but do not recall.

Brazil is a funny one - it's dystopian and a little disturbing, but visually engaging and raises some interesting points, it's also morbidly funny.  It's a bit like 1984 mixed with Catch-22.

It's a test, designed to provoke an emotional response.
