Terry Gilliam”s madcap science fiction epic The Zero Theorem stars two-time Academy Award-winner Christoph Waltz as Qohen Leth, an eccentric and reclusive computer genius plagued with existential angst. Living in isolation in a burnt-out church, Qohen is obsessively working on a mysterious project personally delegated to him by Management (Matt Damon) aimed at discovering the meaning of life – or the complete lack of one – once and for all. Increasingly disturbed by unwanted visits from people he doesn’t fully trust, including flirtatious Bainsley (Mélanie Thierry), Management’s wunderkind son Bob (Lucas Hedges), his unpredictable colleague Job (David Thewlis), and would-be digital therapist Dr. Shrink-Rom (Tilda Swinton), it’s only when he experiences the power of love and desire that he’s able to understand his own reason for being.
Terry Gilliam is one of the members of Monty Python, along with Terry Jones, Eric Idle and Micheal Palin.
John Cleese also participated in many of the Monty Python episodes on TV and in movies.
When is Terry Gilliam going to actually make another GREAT movie? Like Twelve Monkeys, Brazil, The Adventures Of Baron Munchausen or even as good as Time Bandits? We hope sooner rather than later.
