Jabberwocky

1977

Terry Gilliam
Director

A Cooper's son sets forth to the city to find fame and fortune to impress the love of his life, only to find insanity, muck and the titular monster.

Monty Python meets Pasolini and while not as much fun as either still contains the odd gem and has a terrific medieval ambience.
