Based on La Jetée, 12 Monkeys is a time travelling dispatch from the end of the world after an unknown and lethal virus has wiped out five billion people in 1996.  The deadpan Bruce Willis is a memorable foil to the manic Brad Pitt, whose Golden Globe winning performance resulted in part from the director Gilliam confiscating the actor’s cigarettes. Gilliam also reined in Bruce Willis by giving him ‘a list of Bruce Willis acting clichés not to appear in the movie’.
