12 Monkeys

Terry Gilliam, 1995


I really wanted to like this film, but I couldn't. The beginning of this film had a lot going for it, with very high production value providing rich scenery that reminded me of Alien. As the film progressed, I found Brad Pitt's character Jeffrey Goines to be cartoonish, and Madeleine Stowe's lackluster performance very distracting. By the second act the story wasn't holding me, and I found it convoluted and unnecessarilly complicated.
