In one of his more Python-esque films – incidentally the one that erroneously branded him a waster of Hollywood money – Terry Gilliam follows the outrageous exploits of Baron Munchausen (Neville), an adventurer in his twilight years who rails against his waning renown and imminent death.

Staff Pick!
Dave: “The wonderful, fantastical The Adventures of Baron Munchausen will ensure a smile as you dream while awake.”

“The sheer volume and invention of Gilliam’s visual largess sets him apart, and his wit operates for the most part at a dangerously sophisticated level.”
– Sheila Benson, Los Angeles Times
