Critic Reviews of "The Fisher King"Chicago ReaderJanuary 29, 2010
Visually impressive, frequently pretentious, and extremely fluid as narrative (the 137 minutes sail by effortlessly), this mythic comedy-drama presents Gilliam as half seer, half snake-oil salesman and defies you to sort out which is which.VarietyMarch 26, 2009
The Fisher King has two actors at the top of their form, and a compelling, well-directed and well-produced story.NewsweekApril 07, 2008
Working within the constraints of a big studio film has brought out Gilliam's best: he's become a true storyteller and a wonderful director of actors. This time he delights not only the eye but the soul.Time OutJanuary 26, 2006
Scary, touching, often hilarious, this modern fairytale is surprisingly enchanting.New York TimesMay 20, 2003
For every wild ride through Manhattan by an imaginary Red Knight trailing billows of flame, there is a small, comic encounter in a more down-to-earth mode.Rolling StoneMay 12, 2001
So what if it's not perfect? It's magic.Common Sense MediaAugust 09, 2016
Intense '90s drama has gory violence, mature themes.Under the RadarJuly 08, 2015
[Numbers] among the director's masterpieces.The DissolveJune 22, 2015
Gilliam exaggerates the romanticism, the grotesquerie, and the personal pain that runs through LaGravenese's story, creating a reality where the more preposterous turns make sense.Cinema SightAugust 15, 2011
It's sometimes hard to follow the action, but you have a bit of fun trying to figure it all out.TV GuideJanuary 29, 2010
The Fisher King's problems begin with Richard LaGravenese's screenplay and are amplified by Gilliam's showy direction and an unbearably fey performance by Robin Williams.
