“12 Monkeys” (Arrow)
Arrow Home Video, one of the best companies out there for collectors, really likes Terry Gilliam‘s “12 Monkeys,” but can you blame them? They already released a stellar edition of Gilliam’s Oscar-nominated film in 2018, but they’ve returned to it this year with a limited edition steelbook release of the Bruce Willis & Brad Pitt hit. If you have the 2018 edition, there’s not much reason to upgrade (and it seems like a missed opportunity to release this in 4K, doesn’t it?). But if you don’t yet own the film and collect steelbooks, it’s a beauty. There’s also definitely something to the timing of a film about the end of the world that just hits a bit differently in 2021 compared to 2018. As for the film itself, it’s held up very well, getting better each time I watch it.
