The Fisher King (1991)

A genuinely affecting introspection of loss, redemption and the machinations of the human condition. The plot arc strays too far into the fanciful to stay consistently poignant, but save missteps surrounding Williams' hackneyed catalysing relationship, overall quite successful.

The Fisher King (1991)

One of Terry Gilliams best films and also the movie where Robin Williams learned that you don't have to go goofy to go fairly big and still maintain your hold on a character. Touching and tragic and more grounded in reality than a lot of Gilliam.
