A magical film
Verified purchase
Just an all around great film. Full excellent characters, Terry's signature quirkiness with deep heartfelt moments. Excellent acting from everyone involved and a fun yet sad tale for a story. The Criterion Collection's Blu-Ray treatment of this film is astounding. This is my first purchase from them and they seem to really treat great films the way every great film should be treated. Excellent supplemental's and art work. The picture quality is the stand out point as it is amazing. You should like if you're a fan of Terry Gilliam's work, and it would be hard not to even if you had never seen any of his films before.

Quite eccentric
Verified purchase
Robin Williams at what he does best. His personal tragedy is the basis of the film's plot, along with hallucinations of the Grail knights and Grail itself, hence the title. All turns out well as he finds true love again, after losing his first wife to tragic circumstances, in part due and incited by a frivolous DJ, who proceeds to redeem himself by helping Robin Williams attain to better health, and a new woman.

What a film!
Verified purchase
I have to say I have never seen such a ........ dreadful film in my whole life! I sat through it as I could not believe it could carry on being so bad. What utter rubbish. Bad acting and dreadful content. It is all down to opinion I suppose so I hope someone at the charity shop does not feel the same as me!

Funny and poignant
Verified purchase
A superb film that everybody should watch. As a fan of Robin Williams, Jeff Bridges and Terry Gilliam it astonished me that I hadn't seen this film before, but I'm very glad I rectified that. The unmistakeable Gilliam style is present, but subdued for much of the film - this is not necessarily a bad thing, as it is used to great effect on those occasions it's allowed to run rampant.

This is a funny, touching, well acted and occasionally heartbreaking film with a great cast and script.

Stick with it!
Verified purchase
Bought this as it came highly recommended. It arrived on time and in good order. I struggled through the first thirty minutes. American films can be mawkish. Considering the star's subsequent fate his portrayal of a man enduring mental illness is credible and sensitive. I stuck with it to the end. There are worse things to pass a Saturday night with.

Format not recognised on UK bluray player but a classic movie
Verified purchase
This is one of favourite films so I thought I get it on bluray, only trouble is my uk bluray player can't read the US import. I accept I should have checked first but why not put a disclaimer on the product details like they do with different region DVDs? The film itself is a masterpiece for so many reasons and is easily worthy of 5 stars.
