What Parents Need to Know

logo for common sense media

Parents need to know that The Fisher King, the 1991 Terry Gilliam epic, addresses mental health issues brought on by violent trauma -- in this case, the gory gunshot murder of a man's wife in front of his eyes. The man has frightening hallucinations of a giant knight on horseback coming after him, and is violently attacked by street vigilantes. He's also seen naked at night in Central Park. His genitals are briefly glimpsed but mostly obscured by the dark. Expect to hear "f--k," "s--t," "bitch," and other curse words. Adults smoke cigarettes and marijuana and drink a lot of whiskey.
