Zero Theorem

Terry Gilliam / 2014, UK-Romania-France-USA / 106min
Blu-ray, 5.1 surround

Terry Gilliam (Brazil, 12 Monkeys, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas)’s madcap science fiction epic The Zero Theorem stars two-time Academy Award-winner Christoph Waltz as Qohen Leth, an eccentric and reclusive computer genius plagued with existential angst. Living in isolation in a burnt-out church, Qohen is obsessively working on a mysterious project personally delegated to him by Management (Matt Damon) aimed at discovering the meaning of life – or the complete lack of one – once and for all. Increasingly disturbed by unwanted visits from people he doesn’t fully trust, including flirtatious Bainsley (Mélanie Thierry), Management’s wunderkind son Bob (Lucas Hedges), his unpredictable colleague Job (David Thewlis), and would-be digital therapist Dr. Shrink-Rom (Tilda Swinton), it’s only when he experiences the power of love and desire that he’s able to understand his own reason for being.

“[A] visually splendid nightmare of totalitarian glitz… The Zero Theorem is a spectacle that demands to be cherished.” TIME

“A perfect complete masterpiece… under no circumstances should anyone ever experience Terry Gilliam’s The Zero Theorem in anything other than a pristine theatrical experience.” Harry Knowles, Ain’t It Cool News

“Incredibly powerful…The Zero Theorem takes huge philosophical ideas and turns them into a grand sci-fi adventure.” Todd Gilchrist, The Wrap
