Crazy Brad Pitt!

daringdaydreamer writes about Twelve Monkeys

Terry Gilliam, David and Janet Peoples, Chris Marker


Film: Twelve Monkeys .
Creator: Terry Gilliam, David and Janet Peoples, Chris Marker

Encapsulated. Would you recommend this? why?

What an adventure. And some amazing performances. I think one of Brad Pitt's best performances ever.

Time and Space: When and where I first encountered it

Still innocent enough to be disturbed by this view of the world of the future.

Recollection and revelations

This film straddled a huge majority of my underlying fears - death and disease, the end of the world, insanity, violence, conspiracy... Bruce Willis made it for me, I think. And it completely changed my view of Brad Pitt.

Click Alert the moderator to this recollection if you see something on this page that breaks the house rules.

Highly recommended
