Time Bandits (13-Jul-1981)

Director: Terry Gilliam

Writers: Michael Palin; Terry Gilliam

Music Score Composed and Orchestrated by: Mike Moran

Producer: Terry Gilliam

Keywords: Sci-Fi/Comedy, Time Travel

Eleven-year-old Kevin, his parents constantly absorbed in a world of materialistic inanity, finds himself spirited away with a band of six time-traveling dwarfs plundering history with the help of a map purloined from the Supreme Being. Highly imaginative fantasy stylish and Kafkaesque, but mostly very, very Terry Gilliam. Cult classic. Received a Hugo nomination for Best Dramatic Presentation.
