Just stumbled across The Fisher King, or rewatching it?
Liked it a lot when it came out. I was young then and didn't know much of anything. I wonder how I would like it now. Gilliam is kind of hit and miss.
I'm one of the fifteen or so who saw it in the theatre, too. I think it holds up well, even today. Gilliam lets the actors act, and LaGravanese's screenplay carries the day. Only a couple of bizarro Gilliam flourishes, really, and they don't mar the film.
