The Zero Theorem

2013, MediaPro Studios et al

Terry Gilliam fans, rejoice: he has made a mind-bending sci-fi that has totally stumped the vast majority of audience members and critics alike (as evidenced by its having earned only one-tenth its production budget). Fans of Gilliam's work, however, will see all of his classic hallmarks, with an especially large dose of self-awareness. Indeed, the fourth wall is so paper-thin one might be able to read the newspaper through it. Admittedly Zero does get a bit convoluted at times, seemingly lost in a rabbit hole of its own making, but knowing Gilliam I'd wager that was by design.
