Cinecast #33: Failed Tale
Tuesday, 30 August 2005 01:00
We're the  knights who say, blah

If "The Man Who Killed Don Quixote" is the greatest film Terry Gilliam never made, "The Brothers Grimm" has the dubious distinction of being the movie he made instead. Over-ambitious and undisciplined, everything about "Grimm" feels second-rate -- the acting, the story, the direction. Though "Grimm" features isolated moments of visual inspiration, Adam and Sam agree that the entire film lacks coherence. Maybe "Tideland," a new Gilliam film scheduled for release this winter, will find the director in better form.

Also on the show, Listener Feedback, Massacre Theatre -- presented by Movies -- and a preview of Friday's Top 5 Movie Badasses.
