    The best of all worlds, laugh, cry, romance, and plenty of poignant moments. It's a bit farcical, and yet it delivers on a real world way.

    It's an affecting fantasy (almost a fairytale). Gilliam's style help make this feel otherworldly, but it's the dynamite performances from the main cast that make this soo moving.

    Despite the overbearing and typical schtick performance of Robin Williams...this manages to be a great watch. That’s because of the tremendous work of Jeff Bridges, Amanda Plummer and Mercedes Ruehl. Jeff deserved the Oscar nom not Robin. As with most Williams movies, I keep thinking what a better film it would be with a better actor in Robin’s role. This needed Harvey Keitel or James Woods, etc....as Parry. Williams was a great comedian, but even in his best, calm moments (Awakenings) he relied on schtick. Overall, Terry Gilliam hits it perfectly in the offbeat story.

    This movie is pure art! Quixotic and Arthurian. Of course Terry Gilliam would have a quest for the Holy Grail! But sweet, romantic, with all the personal anguish of human tragedy, loss, guilt and redemption. Powerful performances by all four c haracters.

    More than twenty years later this film is still a masterpiece of poetry, imagination, performance and cinematography.

    The Fisher King is a movie by Terry Gilliam about a man who is in a depressed state meets a warm hearted homeless man and helps him to complete his quest. The whole cast gives fantastic performances and we still see how great Robbin Williams is to this day.
