Sober Film Critic James Brown84 - The Fisher King is not quite the best film in Williams's filmography, but it features some fiercely entertaining performances from Williams, Bridges, Ruehl, and Plummer. Terry Gilliam wrangles this impressive cast together and weaves an absurd yet beautiful film somehow full of magical fantasy and piercing drama.
