TERRY Gilliam’s rather silly knockabout gets a rerelease for the sole intention of, so it appears, a new interview with the director himself.

Still, it’s being released on Blu-ray as well, so maybe that’s wiped some of the elderly muck from the screen.

As you’d expect from a 28-year-old film, the effects and models look a bit shabby (especially the Supreme Being whose juddery head looks like a disinterested boiled egg), but as a story it’s rather fun... in a 28-year-old kind of way.

Young Kevin’s adventures with thieving dwarfs through the fabric of time is far too tatty to win over new fans, but those in the mood for Gilliam-style reminiscence should pay another visit.
