12 MONKEYS (1995)

Beware What You Dream For... In Your Future's Past
On the fifth Lynchian day of Christmas, we present Terry Gilliam's thrilling virtuoso science fiction masterpiece 12 Monkeys (1995)—much of the film's action taking place around Christmastime. Perhaps best known for directing the popular comedy Monty Python and the Holy Grail (1974), Gilliam later distinguished himself for his powerful science fiction movies and dramas, including Brazil (1985) and The Fisher King (1991). One of the most Lynchian American film directors, Gilliam's movies almost always feature a similar mind-bending style to David Lynch's work—12 Monkeys is no exception.
12 Monkeys seamlessly transitions through different time periods and mental states of the central character, yet impressively remains completely coherent throughout its running time. 12 Monkeys functions simultaneously as an exciting thriller, a moving drama, and a mind-bending science fiction story—and excels at each. Bruce Willis and Madeleine Stowe deliver fantastic lead performances, and Pre-Durden Brad Pitt earned his first Oscar nomination for his breakthrough supporting role as the certifiably mad Jeffrey Goines.

  1. m4ufree - SyFy has outdone themselves with this remake, I was expecting the typical SyFy lackluster writing and transparent acting. I am glad to say that they have hit this out of the park in my book. The story is close enough to the original that you kind of feel comfortable in the universe but changed enough to freshen it up. The actors and actresses all do a really good job. I am impressed and waiting for more! The story line feels very thought out and not just thrown together, I am enjoying the changes they made to the "present" time it feels more realistic(not sure of how to describe it) than the 1995 movie. The lead actor Aaron Stanford really nails the part of Cole, as does Amanda Schull as Cassie. I hope they get a series 2 and keep this going! Best show SyFy has done in a very long time.
