Jabberwocky

2009105 minutes

Welcome to the kingdom of Terry Gilliam: his solo-directing debut, a gonzo medieval comedy…Amid the filth and muck of England in the Dark Ages, a fearsome dragon stalks the land, casting a shadow of terror upon the kingdom of Bruno the Questionable. Who should emerge as the town’s only possible saviour but Dennis Cooper (Life of Brian’s MICHAEL PALIN), an endearingly witless bumpkin who stumbles onto the scene and is flung into the role of brave knight. The first outing as a solo director by TERRY GILLIAM (Brazil)—inspired by Lewis Carroll’s poem Jabberwocky and made on the heels of Gilliam’s success as a member of the iconic comedy troupe Monty Python—showcases his delight in comic nonsense, with a cast chock-full of beloved British character actors. A giddy romp through blood and excrement, JABBERWOCKY remains one of the filmmaker’s most uproarious visions of society gone berserk.
