 DVD Review - Jabberwocky   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-02)
Director Terry Gilliam began work on "Jabberwocky" very soon after the completion of the classic "Monty Python and the Holy Grail." As both films are set in medieval times and feature cast members from the Monty Python troupe, comparisons between the two are inevitable.
I can’t imagine that "Jabberwocky" was presented theatrically in anything other than mono sound and these attempts to beef it up for the DVD really fall flat.
"Jabberwocky" is a wonderful comedy and as the first film directed solo by Terry Gilliam it exhibits many of the hallmarks that have made his cinematic forays so enjoyable.

 Amazon.ca: Jabberwocky: Books: Lewis Carroll,Stephane Jorisch   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-02)
"Jabberwocky”, the ‘mock-heroic’‚ poem that is famously part of Lewis Carroll’s Through the Looking-Glass, is rich in word-play and sound dynamics.
Stéphane Jorisch, whose illustrated Jabberwocky, has recently garnered a Governor General’s Award for Children’s book illustration, exploits both the interpretive possibilities and the satirical intent of Carroll’s poem, but if Carroll had merely ‘laced’‚ his poem with irony, staying lighthearted on the whole, Jorisch has been far more heavy-handed in his visual treatment.
Grade 5 Up–Jorisch interprets "Jabberwocky" as "a provocative commentary on contemporary media, politics, warfare, religion and gender roles." The stark, dreamlike world shown in his pencil, ink, watercolor, and Adobe Photoshop illustrations is a blend of realism and the bizarre; haute couture and frump; past and future.

As such, he heads to the big city, where he eventually meets up with the princess - who totally ignores reality to embrace her fairy tale ideals and embraces him as her Prince Charming - and then embarks on a quest to slay the monster.
As for those possible charms, some of them exist, but Jabberwocky seems like a minor effort in the Gilliam pantheon; to be certain, it definitely doesn’t live up to the levels reached by many of his later works.
Jabberwocky appears in both an aspect ratio of approximately 1.85:1 and in a fullscreen version on this double-sided, single-layered DVD; the widescreen image has been enhanced for 16X9 televisions.

Both John and Gillian knew as early as 1995 that for her, the issue of alcohol use by counselors on the Jabberwocky campus was a deal-breaker.
Johanna and Arthur said they accepted the duties of July co-directors because they knew the Jabberwocky community would be torn by the events of the past year, and they considered it essential to offer a program for campers who want to come to the Vineyard.
The Jabberwocky contingent marching down Edgartown's Main Street in the Fourth of July Parade may be visibly depleted this year - and it won't have such regulars as Larry Perry of Taunton, who has been a July camper here every summer since that first outing with Hellcat in 1953.

 Clive Nolan & Oliver Wakeman - Jabberwocky
Indeed, Jabberwocky combines Wakeman's foundation, steeped in father Rick's epics (Journey To The Centre of the Earth, Six Wives Of Henry VIII, and The Myths and Legends of King Arthur and the Knights of the Roundtable) with Nolan's dynamic soundtrack-oriented progressive rock style.
It is interesting to note that the band Ambrosia used a narration of portions of Carroll's "Jabberwocky" withinin the song "Mama Frog" found on their self-titled album almost twenty-five years ago.
Nolan & Wakeman's Jabberwocky album is instrumentally very strong and quite symphonic throughout with amazing keyboard riffs in several of the tracks with "Shadows" being the most stunning instrumental example of their collaboration.

Raunchy, irreverent, and borderline cynical, Jabberwocky reveals a lot of Gilliam's flaws as a first-time solo filmmaker, but it also serves as a map of his obsessions and extravagant sense of art direction--elements of his artistry that certainly flourished in subsequent works.
It's hard to tell what the vision behind "Jabberwocky" was, but it came across as a limp spinoff of "Monty Python and the Holy Grail." It has the same grimy, icky medieval look, klunky knights and abundance of filthy beggars, but it doesn't manage to be similarly hilarious.
Jabberwocky is a terrific film in every way: funny, smart, visually involving, and wonderfully acted and directed.

Alice's reaction to Lewis Carroll's poem "Jabberwocky" is relatively typical.
Before incorporating "Jabberwocky" into Looking-Glass, however, Carroll apparently changed his mind as to what some of his words should mean, for when Alice discusses the poem with Humpty Dumpty later in the book, he gives somewhat different interpretations.
The third, and final, technique that Carroll used to keep his poems from becoming meaningless is the fact that he used the sound of his words rather than the meaning of the words to express the meaning of the poem.

Illustrating the works of Lewis Carroll has to be one of the most exacting and dangerous tasks in all of bookdom, but Joel Stewart's version succeeds very well, indeed; his imagery suggests the time period in which "Jabberwocky" was written and his illustrations have the manic fluidity of Carroll's own accomplished art.
This "Jabberwocky" takes place in a distinct, idiosyncratic place that reveals the mind of the illustrator while it carefully visualizes the text.

"Jabberwocky" is a fine example of twisted 'Monty Python' style humour in a midieval setting, even if it is a B movie.
Michael Palin give a fine performance as Dennis Cooper (the son of a barrel maker or cooper, not the rock star) a down on his luck, anti-hero who is hopelessly in love with Griselda who is as unpleasant as her name suggests.
Perhaps this is because Jabberwocky is a different style of film than Monty Python and the Holy Grain and their other famous movies.
