And Brazil obviously. I'm expecting Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas this year no doubt. I'd love Jabberwocky too but that's probably too much to ask for.
The Fisher King is what I'd be wanting next of his movies before any of these. None of those you mention have the lovely Mercedes Ruehl who got the, well deserved, academy award for best supporting actress for this movie.

Gilliam laughs at academy awards.

Gilliam laughs at academy awards.
Maybe, doesn't stop him rooting for his actors to get one though....

When I brought up the subject, his first reaction was to cheer on Jeff Bridges and Christopher Plummer, each of whom has appeared in several of his films:

“I want Jeff to win one and I want Chris to win one,” says Gilliam. “Jeff, I would have thought this is his year.” Indeed, that’s what the consensus seems to be, as Bridges has virtually swept the awards circuit for his performance in Crazy Heart.

Great film, Madeleine Stowe fantastic.
Still looks sexy as hell even in 2022..unless she time travelled from the nineties?

12 monkeys is more like a documentary these days with Covid

'Sincerely, Ben Platt – 5 minutes but this time centred on the film’s star.'

I can't seem to find this extra on my copy... what or where is it?

Holdover from another review mate, thanks for the note, I've edited.

Just watched 12 Monkeys for the first time after picking it up today. Really enjoyed it and another great 4K Disc from Arrow again.

Cant say I've spotted the repeat issue but I'll keep an eye out for it when I watch it again.

Watched it tonight, agree I didn’t notice the error and I was keeping an eye out for it.
An enjoyable film still, Pitt’s performance irked slightly, very OTT, which certainly wasn’t how I remembered it. Great from Willis though, it’s nice to see him act and be very good. Stowe is an absolute stunner.

I assume it’s right back to the transfer/mastering stage, then a new encode followed by another disc run, so not an easy or quick fix.

I’m waiting until it’s confirmed the corrected version is in circulation.
