I Also Recommend:
I remember catching this documentary a few years ago on a movie network and saw only half of it. I was drawn in by not only the title, but the cast and crew. "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas" is my personal favorite film and when the info bar read "Terry Gilliam and Johnny Depp," I knew this would be interesting. I eventually bought the DVD. It's sort of a sad tale, a behind the scenes look at the horrors of film-making, the stuff that featurettes won't show you on a Special Features disc. Anyhow, I couldn't help but feel terribly sadden for Gilliam making an attempt for his dream film. I think like the other reviewer that this could've been his greatest feature. You really symphathize with Gilliam and even the cast and are always hoping for something to come out of the woodworks, but things just tend to get worse and worse for everyone connected to Gilliam's masterpiece. This is along the lines of "Heart of Darkness," with Coppola's long struggle to make his epic war film "Apocolypse Now." It's funny though how the battle to make a Don Quixote doesn't just revolve around Gilliam's deam project, but also the master himself Orson Welles. Not too long ago, his unfinished version was edited together for a DVD release. Now for some interesting and exciting news to those who have viewed this film, I had read on www.imdb.com that Gilliam is actually in the works for another attempt at making his dream film, I'm not sure if it's the same story he had intended and also it's not including the same actors in the cast. So I hope that his new attempt will be more of a success and not a failure. So if you are a Gilliam fan or a fan of film-making, check this out...Was this review helpful?

Almost as tragic as the story of Don Quixote itself is the story of Gilliam's failed attempt to film it. Though the viewer knows from the beginning that it will fail one can't help but hope that some how history will change, it's like watching Permethis pushing his boulder up the hill knowing as he struggles that it will just roll back down to the bottom. Plagued with problems the project feels doomed to begin with but Terry presses on. What footage that is shown is glorious and marks it as even more tragic as this could have been his greatest film.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
