TWELVE MONKEYS (1995 U.S.) D: TERRY GILLIAM W: DAVID and JANET PEOPLES P: CHARLES ROVEN
Bruce Willis is a prisoner kept in a cage in the year 2035 when the remaining 1% population of the Earth have moved underground. He`s selected to go back in time to 1996 to discover the cause of the armageddon. He keeps being sent back to the wrong times, but eventualy convinces Madeline Stowe of the truth while locked up in a mental asylum. Brad Pitt co-stars. Based on the structure of Chris Marker`s remarkable LA JETEE, it`s very visual and (typical of Gilliam) a little overdone with nothing much left to get excited about really. Save more time and check out LA JETEE instead. With Christopher Plummer, Jon Seda, David Morse, Bill Raymond, Irma St. Paule, Frank Gorshin, Christopher Meloni and Richard Stanley.
