The Brothers Grimm ★★★

The Brothers Grimm is exhibit A for why Terry Gilliam is one of my all time favorite directors... Yes, the script is undeniably terrible and hinders the film in many, many ways, and yes, the CG in this film is probably the worst that's ever been put to film; but Gilliam uses his unique sensibilities, fantastical dreamscape visuals, and playful tone to create something that somehow transcends its appalling flaws.
