The last of the Terry Gilliam life trilogy (Time Bandits, Brazil and this), Adventures of Baron Munchausen is the tall tail of the man who saved a European town from the horrors of the Turks. It is a totally fantastic story, completly breaching reality in all forms. Almost a childs story, but with a great amount of wit, and wonderful casting. Very fitting to the dreamlike films that Terry Gilliam is famous for. Is it real? Is it a play? What the hell is it? The DVD is 16x9 enhanced but only in Dolby Pro-Logic. There are no extras worth mentioning. An excellent film and a worthy addition to the Terry Gilliam library.
