Monsterism #53

MONSTER: The Jabberwock
MOVIE: Jabberwocky

Another Gilliam favourite of mine -- actually, it probably is my favourite (outside of the Python films). It certainly isn't for everyone, but I've been watching this time and time again since I was little, as my favourite literary monster has always been the Jabberwock. This is a fantastic interpretation of the poem, starring my favourite Python actor Michael Palin. The monster is shoddy and horrendous in terms of sophisticated and believable special effects, but in the context of the film, it just works so well.
