"Film is the very, very closest to music of any of the other arts because it relies upon time. It’s a continuity art, it happens across a period of time. You have to read a poem, you have to experience a film across a passage of time. And across that passage of time you have to feel its textures, its color, its tones in other words." — Stan Brakhage

"My favorite part of the movie is when Barry goes to Hawaii. He suddenly realizes he can just go to her, even without the frequent-flier miles. This is also my favorite thing in life: the sudden understanding that you aren’t condemned to sadness, that you can simply walk toward the thing you want." — @mirandajuly on PUNCH-DRUNK LOVE (2002)
Terry Gilliam's JABBERWOCKY (1977) arrives today on Blu-ray & DVD! Amid the filth and muck of England in the Dark Ages, a fearsome dragon stalks the land, casting a shadow of terror upon the kingdom of Bruno the Questionable. Who should emerge as the only possible savior but Dennis Cooper (Michael Palin), an endearingly witless bumpkin who stumbles onto the scene and is flung into the role of brave knight? Terry Gilliam’s first outing as a solo director—inspired by Lewis Carroll’s poem “Jabberwocky” and made following Gilliam’s success as a member of the iconic comedy troupe Monty Python—showcases his delight in comic nonsense, with a cast chock-full of beloved British character actors. A giddy romp through blood and excrement, Jabberwocky remains one of the filmmaker’s most uproarious visions of society gone berserk.
The great Terry Gilliam, Michael Palin, and Annette Badland on the red carpet at the 61st @britishfilminstitute London Film Festival earlier this fall, celebrating the new 4K restoration of JABBERWOCKY by the BFI National Archive & The Film Foundation! Our edition of Gilliam’s uproarious classic arrives in Blu-ray & DVD tomorrow!
