Reasons to be cheerful: when you get to watch a director and part of the cast present a movie that has been in the making since 1989 but the universe had conspired against the director and stopped him from making the movie through all the tools the universe had (floods, sandstorms, cast being ill, producers disinterested in the project, producer suing the director). just to compare how much it changed over the years, the original cast was supposed to be jean rochefort and johnny depp.
the final film is typical gilliam. it has its its flaws (long runtime for one) but that is all outweighed by the oddities only gilliam can put on screen.
