TERRY GILLIAM
(1940 - ), American (w/ British productions)

Image

"Gilliam has worked resolutely in the space between the two elements of magic and reality in all his work, hardly surprising in a man who first became widely known as the provider of brilliant, surreal animation sequences for the Monty Python comedy team in the late 1960s and early 1970s... Gilliam's vision is dazzling and often very funny."
- International Dictionary of Films and Filmmakers

That is not how the tier system works.

Brazil is a great film! has re-watch value the most from his body of work which come to think of it aside from BRZL,Fisher King and 12 Monkeys it isn't all that great.

its always weird to think of Holy Grail as a Gilliam film, because everything about it feels ensemble driven. like, im sure he didnt yell at Chapman during the filming about his creative control or something lol.

anyway, i remember i used to consider him one of my favorites (mainly because Monty Python remains in my top 5 things to talk about), but now im not sure why. only Brazil and Fisher King stick out to me as favorites, and neither are very high on that list to begin with.

Yeah the reason I didn't italicize The Holy Grail is not because it's less acclaimed etc than Brazil but because it really isn't much of a "Gilliam film". Brazil is the consummate Gilliam film.

also, Holy Grail is my favorite movie of all time. so as a writer/collaborator, he is still up there for me.

i look forward to the results of "the man who killed don quixote"... a film that's been cursed with such difficulties has to be at the very least interesting...
