Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
The Hamster Factor and Other Tales of Twelve Monkeys is a brutally honest look at the making of a Terry Gilliam film. The madness, the arguments, the tears and the tantrums – it’s all laid bare on screen. It’s a must for filmmakers or those with more than a passing interest in the craft as the film delves deep into what happens when Gilliam is paired with Hollywood and, as usual, not quiet enough money! Essential.
