The Adventures of Baron Munchausen Academy Award Nomination! Academy Award Nomination! Academy Award Nomination! Academy Award Nomination! 

By Tom Keogh

Monty Python's Terry Gilliam (Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas) directs this wild, wild version of the stories of Baron Munchausen, pushing the limits of 1989 special effects technology to bring us such sights as a horse divided in half and running around in two parts, and a giant Robin Williams with his head flying off his shoulders. Basically, this is a treat for Gilliam fans, as the sustaining idea of the film runs out of steam, and manic energy alone keeps the momentum going. Casual viewers might find it tedious after awhile. There are nice parts for fellow Python Eric Idle, as well as Sting, Alison Steadman, and Uma Thurman as a dazzlingly beautiful Venus on a half-shell. Gilliam had greater artistic and commercial success with Brazil, The Fisher King, and 12 Monkeys.

Academy Awards

The Adventures of Baron Munchausen received Academy Awards nominations for Best Achievement in Art Direction (Dante Ferretti - Art Direction, Francesca Lo Schiavo - Set Decorator), Best Achievement in Costume Design (Gabriella Pescucci), Best Achievement in Makeup (Maggie Weston, Fabrizio Sforza) and for Best Achievement in Visual Effects (Richard Conway, Kent Houston).
