Grimm Brothers: enemies of the State?

Skip the so-so and downright negative reviews of Terry Gilliam's new movie The Brothers Grimm. If you're a fan of Gilliam (particularly of things like Time Bandits, Brazil, and other fantasy feasts for the eyes), you'll enjoy the hell out of this one. It's lots of fun, and if it's a "failure," well, it's a Gilliam failure, which is better than 90% of the crap out there in theaters.

And Will and Jacob Grimm may even become 19th Century libertarian folk heroes! At the film's close, the two boys discuss where their futures lie. They need a new path, they admit, because, after all, "We're now men without a nation, enemies of the State." Thankfully, as we fairy tale buffs well know, they didn't go into politics.
