    Book details

Every Terry Gilliam film creates its own unique world, fuelled byobsession and fantasy, yet realized with meticulous craftmanship and dark humour. From the medieval mock-epic Monty Python and the Holy Grail to the mythic, paranoid worlds of The Fisher King, Twelve Monkeys and Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Gilliam has pursued a totally personal, uncompromising vision. This has led to legendary battles with studios and financiers, notably over The Adventures of Baron Munchausen and Brazil, which is now widely considered a classic.Gilliam is a famously candid commentator on his own work, and in these specially recorded interviews he reflects on how his Midwestern childhood and early career as an animator prepared him to undertake his extraordinary adventures in cinema.

Starting his career as a cartoonist and animator, notably as a member of the classic Monty Python team, Terry Gilliam has gone on to create a series of powerful, idiosyncratic films that are unlike anything else in contemporary cinema. Ambitious, symbolic and visually stunning, the director's work is the result of an uncompromising personal vision that has often brought him into conflict with producers and studios. The story of this impressive career is told by Gilliam himself in this excellent book.
