In a weird, chaotic way, this film truly shows the depth of Brad Pitt’s acting abilities. I feel due to his “pretty boy” image in Hollywood he is not taken a seriously as he should be. (His current role as Jesse James in The Assassination of Jesse James as a prime example). Bruce Willis travels back in forth in time and once again shows his “Die Hard” character in several different settings.
Sci-Fi, thriller, drama call it what you will, when I first saw this film I was pulled in. It is fast paced, un-nerving and quite good. Watching it again today, it still brings chills even though I know how it ends. Directed by the former Monty Python star, Terry Gilliam it makes me look forward to his latest directing stint in The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus, which unfortunately lost Heath Ledger as one of it’s stars last week.
