The theme of the converging worlds of fantasy and reality seem to run throughout his films. Fisher King, Brazil and 12 Monkeys are all very similar in that their respective protagonists all wrestle with the notion of insanity.
Are they indeed menatlly divergent? Or is the world around them the true insantity?

I love his trademark cinematography...really one of those filmmakers whose style you can recognize as distinctive and unique

That last post was directed a terrawrist.
Deep you're so right though, you can tell a Gilliam film right from the very first scene.
If you notice the scene near the end of Brazil when Sam is driving in the country and then is drawn back to his lobotomized reality it seems eerily similar to the scene in 12 Monkey's when the panel of scientists are humming 'blue berry hill' while Cole stares at the picture of the florida keys.
They say that a directors are constantly remaking the same movie over and over again. In the case of Gilliam he's most certainly driving at the irrationality of the rationality that characterizes a hyper-beauracracized society. At least that's what I take from his movies.
Shit, I gotta go to bed I got two exams tomorrow.
