Terry Gilliam’s second big-star ‘retrench’ movie benefits from his fertile imagination, and his handling of an overly complicated sci-fi script. Did happy audiences respond to the film’s second-hand time travel complexities, or did they just like seeing Brad Pitt in a new mode, playing a weird motormouthed eccentric? Bruce Willis gets first billing and Madeleine Stowe and Christopher Plummer provide support in a tale adapted from a classic Chris Marker film. On Blu-ray from Arrow Video.
