Time machine user interfaces: Time Bandits

Time Bandits (1981)

User interface: The Map
Strictly speaking, the user interface was jumping through a hole, but you could only find the holes by using The Map! Terry Gilliam makes great looking movies and the cartography on this map is no exception. It’s such a beautiful piece of prop-work that graphic designer Jon Heilman painstakingly recreated it based on stills from the movie.

If you’ve never seen the movie or you’ve gotten all nostalgic you can watch the whole movie on YouTube.

This was one of my favorite movies as a kid; I’ve seen it sooo many times. It was right up there with the dark crystal.

Totally. It’s one of those movies that feels like an old friend… and what a cast!
