Washington Post - Desson Thomson
A modern epic that fuses myth with hard-edged reality, it's a one-of-a-kind, thoroughly engaging experience.
Variety - Unnamed
The Fisher King has two actors at the top of their form, and a compelling, well-directed and well-produced story.
The New York Times - Elvis Mitchell
What emerges, in the end, are a clever premise that has been allowed to go awry and several performances that are lively and unpredictable enough to transcend the confusion. Mr. Bridges, always a fine intuitive actor, has never displayed a greater range.
Chicago Reader - Jonathan Rosenbaum
If you treasure Gilliam at his best and take his ideas seriously, you'll probably be infuriated as well as delighted.
Rolling Stone - Peter Travers
Restores our belief in the power of movies to transform reality, even temporarily. So what if it's not perfect? It's magic.

The Fisher King (1991)

Two troubled men face their terrible destinies and events of their past as they join together on a mission to find the Holy Grail and thus to save themselves.
