Lucky 13 Film Club: August Topic

CindyLucky13Banner (1)

Hello, friends! My Australian buddy, Jordan, from EPILEPTICMOONDANCER, is passionate about Terry Gilliam and his satirical dystopian trilogy. Everyone loves 12 Monkeys(1995). Somehow I missed Brazil (1985) and while The Zero Theorem (2013) did not awe the critics, what did you think? I agree with Jordan that a science fiction discussion is overdue. How are the three films connected? With fresh eyes or new ones, why not rent one or the whole trilogy and come back and see us on August 13.

    1. Oh. Good! A blindspot. He’s one of my favorite British personalities. If you only have time for one of the three, you gotta watch 12 Monkeys.

  3. Looks good, Cindy and Jordan. I haven’t seen ‘The Zero Theorem’, but the other two are well-known to me, especially ‘Brazil’.
    See you on the 13th!
    Best wishes, Pete.

          4. It was a great visit. It was the first time she was able to get away after my dad passed in April. I was so happy we spent the week together. Now I have to start back at school on Monday. I’m so behind with blogging and writing.

    1. Great to hear! Hope you will stop round and contribute your thoughts, Mark. Maybe tell us why Theorem was sub-par in comparison? 😉

  6. I’m a big fan of Gilliam. I think Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus is his masterpiece. Tideland is very underrated. I didn’t care for Zero Theorem, though — the very first time the master has disappointed me.
