    Terry Gilliam rules and doesn't pull punches when it comes to making dark movies. 12 Monkeys also rules. One of my favorite "different" performances by both Brad and Bruce.

    I think you mean psychological.

    Physiological is pertaining to the branch of biology dealing with the functions and activities of living organisms and their parts, including all physical and chemical processes.

    But, yes, it's an amazing movie. Brad Pitt's my favorite actor, and I'll watch anything with him in it (doesn't make it a good movie, but I'll watch it just the same).

    Definatley one of the best Films of the 90's. I think its one of Gilliams best and really had a great story.

    I loved it.

    The best dynamic of it to me is the concept of love based on predetermined fate. As a child he saw a beautiful woman emerge for a horrific event. He held onto that subconsciously and was led to the same woman as an adult.

    12 Monkeys is one of my favorites. Crazy Brad Pitt is hilarious. Terry Gilliam is indeed a champ. Another good movie of his, Brazil.

    Awesome movie. Gilliam is great. If you liked 12 monkeys, Brazil is good but slow, Adventures of Baron Münchausen is great, and so is Time Bandits.

    It's good, just like the original, La Jetee which 12 Monkeys is a remake of.

    As mentioned, it deals with a temperal paradox, predestination, and fatalism, making it a good psychological film.
