THE ZERO THEOREM
Brazil director Terry Gilliam is back with a kooky collection of misfits, including Christoph Waltz, Tilda Swinton, Ben Whishaw, David Thewlis and Melanie Thierry. Judging from the trailer, the film certainly doesn’t look short on whimsy, but the premise of a hermit with an existential crisis in a futuristic world filled with so much neon is enough to entice even the most unadventurous moviegoer. The Zero Theorem is slowly being released in theaters worldwide, but no wide release date yet for the US.
