but for some reason Netflix doesn’t have it. Obama!
so i was like, have you seen The Fisher King? she was all, never even heard of it.
i said oh it was directed by the guy who made the Monty Python movies and it’s a little weird.
she went, lets get weird.
so ordered some chinese, put on some movie-watching clothes, hypnotized the kittens to fall asleep
and was disappointingly underwhelmed with how The Fisher King has held up over the years.
for some reason i remember it being trippier and weirder and… deeper than it felt last night.
totally forgot that Jeff Bridges’ character was a Howard Stern ripoff (tribute?)
and was bummed that a lot of the zest and creativity from Brazil, Time Bandits, and Baron Munchausen wasn’t there.
the young lady fell asleep after a few hours and woke up for the end
and yours truly also was lured to the land of nod before the film was over.
not at all what i would have expected from a Robin Williams movie directed by Terry Gilliam.
Williams, however, was terrific, but was pretty much just Robin Williams.
not that theres anything wrong with that, but come on bros!
