“I am mentally divergent, in that I am escaping certain unnamed realities that plague my life here. When I stop going there, I will be well.
Are you also divergent, friend?”
12 Monkeys (1995)
About: A lone time traveler from the year 2035 must solve a riddle that may save his people … but it may also take him to the brink of madness. Bruce Willis, Madeleine Stowe, and Brad Pitt star in this brilliant sci-fi masterpiece from Terry Gilliam, the acclaimed director of The Fisher King. After the world’s population is devastated by a killer virus, survivors must live in dank underground communities. Cole (Willis) “volunteers” to travel into the past to obtain a pure virus sample, thereby helping scientists develop a cure. Along the way, he crosses paths with a beautiful psychiatrist (Stowe) and a one-card-short-of-a-full-deck mental patient (Pitt). But the race is on, as Cole searches for The Army of the 12 Monkeys, a radical group linked to the deadly disease. With unforgettable performances and imaginative special effects, 12 Monkeys is a modern-day classic laced with Gilliam’s trademark wit and dazzling visual style. (Universal Pictures)
