The Fisher King (1991) 2 x DVD5 Criterion Collection
Jack Lucas is a high-flying host of a New York radio talkback show. However, when Jack says, during one of his on-air rants, that Yuppies are so disgusting they should all be wiped out, he is shocked to discover that his caller has subsequently gone and blown away a bar full of Yuppies with a shotgun. Following this, Jack becomes a burned-out emotional wreck. One night, Jack decides to end it all but is saved by a homeless man Parry. Jack is drawn into Parry’s bizarre world where he rants about the Holy Grail and has hallucinations of being pursued by a giant Red Knight. Jack gives Parry help to win Lydia, the girl of his dreams. In so doing, Jack starts to rediscover himself again. However, when Parry falls into a coma, Jack realises that to save his life he must find Parry’s sought-after Holy Grail.
