If you enjoy Time Bandits in August, you'll love the final screening in our Terry Gilliam season which follows the account of Baron Munchausen's supposed travels and fantastical experiences with his band of misfits. Munchausen was an 18th-century German nobleman whose tall tales about his wartime exploits against the Ottoman Empire have been re-imagined in this beautiful, fantastical film. The final film in our Creative Genius of Terry Gilliam season.

The sheer volume and invention of Gilliam’s visual largess sets him apart, and his wit operates for the most part at a dangerously sophisticated level.
— Los Angeles Times
One of the most voluptuously beautiful films ever imagined, Munchausen naturally assumes that surrealism is preferable, that through make-believe we find the way to true beliefs
