The Zero Theorem yellow light

Terry Gilliam descends into near self-parody with this mess of a would-be philosophical mind-frak about a mathematical formula for the meaning of life that has little to say. Still, the glorious Gillam style is on full display, and Christoph Waltz’s performance is fun.
I’m “biast” (pro): adore Terry Gilliam

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

viewed during the 57th BFI London Film Festival
