Film Review: The Theory of Nothing


The Zero Theorem, written by Pat Rushin. Directed by Terry Gilliam. Copyright 2013. Seen November 12, 2014.

Watching a Terry Gilliam film reminds me when I took calculus in high school. I didn’t have a clue what I was doing, but I did it very well.

This math comparison is even more appropriate with his latest venture, The Zero Theorem. Filled with math and computer references galore, the plot – like many a Gilliam film – is complex and hard to distill easily.
