Another movie that keeps on improving with time, as movies keep on getting
worse. Features an excellent documentary titled The Hamster Factor
& Other Tales of the 12 Monkeys which goes beyond the usual promo
material in which everybody tells just how great it was to work with so-and-so,
blah, blah . . .
In contrast, this "making of" featurette seems painfully honest
about the characters involved. Funny, interesting and proof once again
that test audiences usually consist of the bottom of the evolutionary
ladder pond amoebae: no-one in the test audience liked the movie and director
Terry Gilliam made the correct decision in ignoring them and releasing
his movie without making any changes to it.
WORTH IT? One of the best movies of the 1990s, in any genre .
