Time Bandits

Part of the Retrospective: The Future Is History Strand


A dark, outlandish fairytale in which a young boy joins a gang of time-travelling dwarves as they rampage through the ages stealing priceless artefacts, Terry Gilliam’s Time Bandits is a treat. Casting Craig Warnock in the lead, and David Rappaport, Kenny Baker, Malcolm Dixon, Mike Edmonds, Jack Purvis and Tiny Ross as the bandits themselves, Gilliam enlisted Sean Connery, Ralph Richardson, David Warner, Ian Holm and co-writer Michael Palin, and with ironic brilliance re-imagined the history of the world as a distinctly British affair.
