Our take

Exhibit A when it comes to case studies in studio meddling, the US release of Terry Gilliam’s maximalist sci-fi opus was fiercely embattled. This director’s cut of the artisanal, Kafka-esque epic is the definitive experience—the only way to see the bureaucratic apocalypse unfold in its full glory.
