The Man Who Killed Don Quixote - T. Gilliam (2018)

Whenever my hubby suggests a film where there is more dialogue than explosions, I'm in.

Pros :
- Terry Gilliam is a talented director. The savoir-faire is evident.
- Lavish setting, sumptuous costumes; very visually appealing.
- Highly ambitious script - meta-literature, meta-cinematography, meta-realism... Elaborate!
 
Cons :
- Neither me nor my better half was able to work out precisely what went wrong with this film. 
All of the above should have it work like a charm. Why it doesn't I have no idea, but it doesn't.

In short : I was bored stiff after a half-hour. Things did not improve.
