The Adventures Of Baron Munchausen (1988)

Rating: ****
Director: Terry Gilliam
Cast: John Neville, Eric Idle, Uma Thurman, Jonathan Pryce, cameos by Sting and Robin Williams

A beautiful and fascinating fantasy piece by Terry Gilliam that only suffers from a lightweight and flimsy plot. An aged Baron Munchausen (John Neville) teams up with a young girl to reunite with his former companions in order to save their besieged city from the invading Turks. En route they go to the moon, the bowels of the earth, and even end up in the belly of a giant sea creature. Mind blowing sets and stunning visual effects set this film apart from all others. Plus, it's a lot of fun.
