Welcome to the kingdom of Terry Gilliam: his solo‐directing debut, a gonzo medieval
comedy…

Amid the filth and muck of England in the Dark Ages, a fearsome dragon stalks the land,
casting a shadow of terror upon the kingdom of Bruno the Questionable. Who should
emerge as the town’s only possible saviour but Dennis Cooper (Life of Brian’s Michael
Palin), an endearingly witless bumpkin who stumbles onto the scene and is flung into the
role of brave knight? The first outing as a solo director by Terry Gilliam (Brazil)—inspired
by Lewis Carroll’s poem “Jabberwocky” and made on the heels of Gilliam’s success as a
member of the iconic comedy troupe Monty Python—showcases his delight in comic
nonsense, with a cast chock‐full of beloved British character actors. A giddy romp through
blood and excrement, Jabberwocky remains one of the filmmaker’s most uproarious
visions of society gone berserk.
