The Adventures of Baron Munchausen

Continuity mistake: When Munchausen is about to be executed for the second time, right after the Sultain sais: "Executioner, execute!" we see the executioner raising the axe. The axe is facing the wrong way. In the next shot it's the right way. (01:39:45)

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene after the storm, the ship moves in the sand. Look at its front and you'll be able to see a wire that moves the ship. It's very visible.

Trivia: This film was actually the third installment in director Terry Gilliam's "Trilogy of Imagination," all dealing with fantasy escapism at different ages in life. The first film of the trilogy was 1981's "Time Bandits," a surreal fantasy seen through the eyes of a child; the second film was 1985's "Brazil," another surreal fantasy seen through the eyes of a middle-aged man; 1988's "The Adventures of Baron Munchausen" was yet another surreal fantasy seen through the eyes of an elderly gentleman.
