The travesty of war has been captured on film time and time again. From Apocalypse Now to Saving Private Ryan, some war films are better than others but the fact remains that war is hell and film serves as an excellent way to depict the horror and sometimes, adventure. The latest war drama Fury is a welcome addition to the genre and it not only features exhilarating action sequences but a powerful cast full of seasoned actors who fully submerge themselves in their respective roles. Brad Pitt headlines the strong cast and David Ayer pulls triple duty as writer/director/producer.
Terry Gilliam is a filmmaker who possesses what seems to be a truly unlimited imagination. His science fiction and fantasy films over the years have been the stuff of legends. The worlds he creates are vivid, weird and downright beautiful. The man has been dazzling audiences since the 1960s with his work with the comedy group “Monty Python” and with his bizarre yet gorgeous directorial efforts. His latest film The Zero Theorem continues in that vein of offbeat cinematic output and while it is a work full of the filmmaker’s signature quirks and unique style, it might detract casual moviegoers.
