McDonald at the Movies: Time Bandits

Wed, Apr 10 / 7 pm
Directed by Terry Gilliam
1981, UK, 116 min

Once a month, comedian, star and co-founder of Kids in the Hall, comic Kevin McDonald will present a film handpicked from the archives of comic history.

“An extraordinarily inventive fantasy in which schoolboy Warnock is rescued from a dull suburban existence by a band of renegade dwarfs, who emerge from his wardrobe and whisk him off on an incredible journey through time and space. Guided by a ‘Time Hole Map of the Universe’, Warnock and his diminutive pals gatecrash history, meeting up with Robin Hood and Napoleon, and turning up uninvited in Ancient Rome and on the deck of the ill-fated Titanic. Monty Python animator Terry Gilliam fills the screen with bizarre images, and directs with a breathless ingenuity.” – Time Out

Reviews

A cheerfully irreverent lark - part fairy tale, part science fiction and part comedy. It's a fantastic though wobbly flight through history and legend in the company of a small boy named  Kevin and six dwarfs named Randall, Fidgit, Wally, Og, Stutter and Vermin.
- Vincent Canby, New York Times
