"The interesting thing about it is because it takes place in this one place, this chapel — that’s going to be the challenge, because I have never shot like that before, in that limited space. So to keep it interesting is what I’m going to have to master. The acting is crucial to it — there is no car chase nor a shootout — none of those things you can fall back upon to keep the film going." - Terry Gilliam.
The film is about an internal quest. An everyman who has chewed life and has lost all taste for it, is waiting for a call to answer if his life had any meaning at all. His distances himself from the noisy world outside, instead choosing to suffer alone in a broken, pigeon and rat infested, burned-out church, which is only elevated by virtual sex fantasy. The irony, maybe this is what it means to lose your soul. However, sadly inside this film, it lacks much of the humour found in those previous films.
In all his film, the authoritarian state/corporation always has an intrusive surveillance over everyone. I mostly enjoy his wacky wit and black humour, and I love the not distant-neon-techno-garbage visuals. Its neurotic and a 100% conundrum.
