Overview

Terry Gilliam, director of Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, first came to attention as the iconoclastic animator and founding member of the Monty Python team. In the 1970s he emerged as an increasingly ambitious filmmaker, moving from the collaborative Python projects, Monty Python and the Holy Grail and Monty Python's Life of Brian, to the first inklings of his own distinctively dark, fantastic, and strangely hilarious vision in Jabberwocky and Time Bandits. In the 1980s he produced his masterpiece, Brazil. This has been followed by The Adventures of Baron yon Munchausen, The Fisher King, and Twelve Monkeys.

Gilliam on Gilliam offers the filmmaker's intensely lucid and thoughtful commentary on his own wildly imaginative and bizarre work, as well as on the contemporary cinema. This is a rare view of the work of an artist of rare talent.
