‘The Zero Theorem’ is Terry Gilliam’s latest weird and wonderful film offering. He says it forms the third part of a trilogy along with Brazil and 12 Monkeys.
Terry Gilliam explained the motivation for the movie: “Well I thought it was a perfect representation of the world we live in at the moment. When I go out – I live in London – you go to Piccadilly Circus and ads are coming at you. You’re attacked all the time by ads, television – all of this is going on. It’s not always as nice as the way Maserati does it here, it’s more subtle – and people seem to be busy, running around the streets, doing things. They seem to be happy. They look happy. I’m not convinced they are though.”
The film is about a hacker who is trying to find the reason for human existence but who is constantly distracted by ‘The Management’.
The star studded cast includes Christoph Waltz, Mélanie Thierry, David Thewlis, Matt Damon, Ben Whishaw, Tilda Swinton and Rupert Friend.
‘The Zero Theorem’ is on screens now.
