Let's start with this sort of mini-review from Harry Knowles on twitter : "The film I watched 3 consecutive times in a row last night was Terry Gilliam's ZERO THEOREM, I've been given the OK to write - so I am." "It is easily Terry's greatest work since BRAZIL, the best acting of Christophe Waltz's career - and Damon... AWESOME! You've never seen this." " the second it was over and I realized I could play it again, I had to. Then, the third time it was the post coital cuddle"
Harry Knowles just posted his full review of the film : http://www.aintitcool.com/node/63845 "A movie that is a complete artistic realized vision that instantly engages your mind at every level. " "I canít think of a greater viewing pleasure Iíve had in a real long time than getting to discover ZERO THEOREM." "I just hope to God it gets released untouched. Thereís not a frame needing to be lost. IT IS PERFECT! So rare you can say that. "
The negative reviews don't seem to understand the satire of the contemporary world, complaining that the "future" of the film feels dated or not futuristic enough. That's weird (I mean, Sam Lowry drove a 1950's car and nobody seemed to mind).
