The Fisher King is a disorganized, rambling and eccentric movie that contains some moments of truth, some moments of humor, and many moments of digression.

There are two terrific performances at the center of The Fisher King, and neither belongs to Robin Williams.

I found the Jeff Bridges character to be a total loser. His character taught me nothing other than it is pretty awful spending a lot of time with an alcoholic dead beat even if he is only on a movie screen.

Gilliam's pyrotechnics can't redeem the utterly predictable plot.

The Fisher King's problems begin with Richard LaGravenese's screenplay and are amplified by Gilliam's showy direction and an unbearably fey performance by Robin Williams.

Gilliam's grand, Williams is wonderful, and Bridges is brilliant! (Corny, I know, but that's how much I dig this movie.)

It's Gilliam's most relaxed and heartfelt filmmaking, with a new respect for human frailty and actors' moments.

Visually impressive, frequently pretentious, and extremely fluid as narrative (the 137 minutes sail by effortlessly), this mythic comedy-drama presents Gilliam as half seer, half snake-oil salesman and defies you to sort out which is which.

The Fisher King has two actors at the top of their form, and a compelling, well-directed and well-produced story.

Scary, touching, often hilarious, this modern fairytale is surprisingly enchanting.
