The Ultimate Movie Review! - - @tss5078

When you watch a Terry Gilliam film, you should expect for there to be a fair amount of weirdness. When you add Science Fiction to the mix, there is the possibility that anything can happen. With this in mind, I was really excited to see The Zero Theorem, and what I got was simply one of the worst films I have ever seen! Qohen Leth (Christoph Waltz) is a computer genius, who has been assigned by Management to discover the meaning of life. He does this alone in an old abandoned church. This movie made absolutely no sense to the point where I don't even know how the hell to describe it in any way that would do it justice. Waltz is running around like a madman the entire time, talking so fast, with that accent, that he's impossible to understand. He meets Tilda Swinton at some type of party, and she keeps showing up for some unknown reason, personally I just think it's because she's weird and she likes being in weird movies. Waltz has all these odd computer programs, strange characters he interacts with and talks non-sense with, all in a film that moves faster than his internet connection. I really just didn't understand a thing that was going on and watching it a number of times or doing any amount of any drug in the world wouldn't change that. How is a solitary man playing strange computer games supposed to discover the meaning of life? Who are all these people who keep showing up? What in the hell are they talking about, and what does anything have to do with anything? I'm not entirely sure that another person on this planet besides Terry Gilliam understands what was going on in this film. All I know is that no one should have ever been exposed to whatever this nightmare was intended to be.

An odd film to "review" since (for me) it's eerily personal

Every now and then I see a flick which really does appear to be one in which the scenarist/writer successfully got a message radioed in by a very pure channeling of the subconscious mind, then never got around to asking the subconscious what it was on about. In this case, the subconscious might have told the writer, "Oh, I need to get an important message to..." me; the guy writing the IMDb comment you're reading.

Now, hang in with me here. I say "every now and then" for a reason. If flicks did this more often, I'd look into getting on meds. The point here is that there are just a few too many data points that touch on aspects of my life which... seem... (tho I could be wrong on this) *very* personal.

Qohen is very much me. I suppose there may be more folks like him than I realize, and Gilliam & Co. thought to give my forgotten caste a little love, this go-'round.

There are, of course, more general, social and technological commentaries which are are like a fish tank water in which swim many interesting species. But Qohen is an odd fish indeed, and very much reflects what I'm going though in my life.

I think this flick languishes in the 6.x IMDb score doldrums because... well, for the same reason that a film pitched to my little demographic would bewilder most folks; just as I tend to bewilder most folks.

It's a flick that yearns to reach out to all, even though it's not a universal story; how many people are thinking like Qohen?; that he can use the tools provided by an evolving hi-tech/hi-stimulation milieu and turn them to the effect of achieving Bodhisattva-hood? Essentially, building a raft from the flotsam and jetsam of a society that inhumanly bends you to its damnable rules and riding it down the existential maelstrom of ultimate negation, successfully, via the application of a perfectly understood principle?

Technically, the film is an absolute wonder. Gilliam's famous penchant for swimming, kaleidoscopic detail is expressed very, very well here. I've always loved this. Also, for such a bizarre film, there's an aspect to production which is strangely "old school": Specifically, the script feels like a stageplay with a fingernail grip on discernible narrative, the actors driven by ogrelike forces to breathe life into it in spite of itself. Again, another cause for the film to alienate some, yet find a niche in my tired old heart; when done "right" this works for me, and by my lights it's done right here.

A gamer and his scientific goal.

Honestly, this is the first film from Terry Gilliam I did not enjoy. I feel very bad to rate such a low for his film. Literally, there was no story in it. Just a confused character and the events surround him unfolds in a weird way. The characters, settings, I thought it had potential. Visually, it was the same Terry Gilliam style film, but the screenplay failed to have impressive developments. Nonetheless, Christopher Waltz was so good.

It is being more a gamer's tale is what turned down. Seeing the title, I anticipated something brilliant or mind-bender. Though most of the film it was the main character who hold the joystick and try to achieve a scientific goal. The Melanie Thierry part was good. Brought some cheers, but did not end properly. The film did not fare well among the film goers. Mostly a mixed response. But I think it was a below average, especially coming from such a great director.
