OFS Sci-Fi Theater Presents: TIME BANDITS

OFS Sci-Fi Theater Presents:

TIME BANDITS

TIME BANDITS is a remarkable time-travel fantasy from acclaimed director Terry Gilliam (Brazil, 12 Monkeys) who utilizes fantastic set design and homemade special effects to create a vivid, original universe. The story revolves around a young boy who joins a group of renegade dwarves on a wild, unpredictable journey through time. It’s a weird and wonderful mix of adventure, Monty Python-esque humor and grim irony, all wrapped in tall tales, ancient myths, and historical figures. Particularly amusing are the boy’s encounters with various historical figures, including an entertainment-starved Napoleon (Ian Holm), a powerful Agamemnon (Sean Connery), and a surprisingly stuffy Robin Hood, embodied by Gilliam’s Python cohort John Cleese. With TIME BANDITS, Gilliam wanted to capture the “craziness of our awkwardly ordered society and the desire to escape it through whatever means possible.”
