Plot

After the death of his father the young cooper 'Dennis Cooper' goes to town where he has to pass several adventures.

A medieval tale with Pythonesque humour.
 

Comments

This early Terry Gilliam film is better than its reputation. This often neglected first solo directing effort of Gilliam's is certainly much better than its maligned reputation would have you believe.While it is though sledding the first time through, it gains appreciably with repeated viewings, but does demand you pay attention.Amongst all the excrement, garbage and filth, Gilliam and his co-writer actually have a little something to say about big business, but mainly JABBERWOCKY is very, very funny.Strong stomachs are required, however.
