Terry Gilliam’s bag of tricks may be motley, multicolored, and lovingly crafted, but its contents are not unlimited. His new dystopian allegory plays like a digital-age version of his classic Brazil. Christoph Waltz makes the weirdness work as a hairless ascetic who crunches unfathomably complex equations for a living. His latest assignment: Produce a quantitative proof that existence is meaningless. Gilliam’s penchant for overstimulation can numb your visual cortex, but Theorem is still the best thing he’s pulled out of that bag in a while. (Also on iTunes and VOD) B
