fisher king

SPOILER ALERT! IF YOU HAVE NOT SEEN FISHER KING OR BRAZIL MAYBE YOU DONT WANT TO READ (PARTS OF) THIS! SPOILER ALERT!

ok, my gilliam movie-collection is slowly growing. now its only tideland I have not yet found.
so, I got fisher king on dvd. I had seen it before, but only rememberd tom waits and the scene in the restaurant where mr williams starts singing "lydia the tattoed lady".
so I was in for a hell of a ride as you can imagine... the biggest laugh the little private dragshow in the office (link above) gave me. I had to google up the lindbergh-baby just because it was mentioned... I think I understand the joke... maybe. haha.

the whole grail-theme ofcourse made me giggle because... well... gilliams second movie where they are looking for it. and I can swear I heard the words "well, at least its not a model!" but they were not subtitled, and the dvd only has swedish, norweigan, danish and finnish subtitles so Im not sure.

and the end... I was half expecting it to be like the ending of brazil with him drifting of to lala-land, but he came back and gave it a happyish ending.
but anyway I liked it!
what do you guys think of the movie?

Lvndr HppE: Yeah, that's my favorite part of the movie. Funny, they sang this song on Glee and it made me think of this scene from Fisher King. I like the Fisher King, but I've only seen the tv version. My sister-in-law says that's a good thing, because they show Robin William's ding aling. Not that I'm so innocent that I need to be censored, but I can also live without seeing Robin William's schlong swinging around.

hmmm, dont know how it works in america, but with "tv-version" you mean that a tv-channel edits out what they think should not be in it right?
in that case I can say YOU DONT see anything of his manhood! at least I didnt! you see his buttcheeks when he is dancing around singing about having the little guy swinging in the wind, but you dont see anything. :P
