Time Bandits (1981)
Sunday 13th September 2009
Time Bandits, released on DVD and Blu-ray by Optimum Home Entertainment on 5th October 2009, tells the story of a group of guerrilla dwarves who leave their jobs with The Supreme Being for a life of crime with a map they've stolen from their workplace. The map holds the secrets to time-holes in the fabric of creation, allowing the holders to go forward and back as they please. The gang intends to use the map to hunt treasure - which they have little skill at, and to steal - at which they fail miserably.
One such journey lands them in the bedroom of a young boy Kevin, who joins them on their journey. Gilliam transports Kevin, the Bandits and audience alike through time and history to meet such random figures as Robin Hoo, Napoleon, and Agamemnon.
Pursued however by an evil genius who will stop at nothing to get his hands on the map Boasting music by George Harrison, who co-produced the film alongside writer/director Gilliam, it stars Academy Award-winners Sean Connery, John Cleese and Jim Broadbent, plus co-writer Palin, in a classic and timeless, hilarious and always engaging fantasy.
