    Possibly the most highly detailed, witty and satisfying of Gilliam's films and, inasmuch, Munchausen is one of the most entertaining films ever made.

    Touching on compelling thematic ideas such as the importance of imagination, the nature of death, and even Cartesian Dualism, Terry Gilliam's "The Adventures Of Baron Munchausen" may be a potentially batty picture, but thanks to some delightful humor and breathtaking sets, it's also damn fun.

    A little bit too long, the movie doesn't fail to entertain. Gilliam had a great vision and an idea of imagination and he successfully put it on the screen. Great performances, matching music and a touch of Terry. Even non-Gilliam lovers are going to at least like this movie.

    I had the misfortune first of watching the German propaganda film before this. This is the way to tell the story. Perfect use of Gilliam's imagination and gifts as a visual filmmaker.

    I was confused sometimes during Baron Munchausen and bored sometimes, but this is a vast and commodious work, and even allowing for the unsuccessful passages there is a lot here to treasure.
  2. With their remarkable contributions, ''Baron Munchausen'' is full of moments that dazzle, just for the fun of seeing the impossible come to life on the screen. What the Folies-Bergere once was for the foot-weary tourist, ''Baron Munchausen'' is for the television-exhausted child. Nothing much happens, but you can't easily tear your eyes away from it.

    A fitting final installment in Terry Gilliam's trilogy begun with Time Bandits and continued with Brazil, The Adventures of Baron Munchausen shares many of those films strengths and weaknesses, but doesn't possess the visionary qualities of the latter.
