    Even as a Terry Gilliam fan, I don't find F&L very watchable. But damn there are some great scenes in it.

    Same here, as a Gilliam fan, I found this film too muddled.

    Just an average public school. I just have an awesome teacher. We've also gotten to watch Fight Club, Donnie Darko, American History X, Memento, half of Full Metal Jacket, and a bunch of other ones that aren't coming to mind right now.

    We got to watch stuff like that my senior year of high school. We had a class that was all seniors and the teacher didnt care what we did. We just brought in movies we wanted to watch.

    I thought the movie was good but the last 20 minutes sucked because it seemed like they were trying to cram the rest of the novel into the last part of the movie.

    Very trippy movie, especially if you're a bit tired when you're watching it. Johnny Depp and Benicio Del Torro are just perfect...
