Visionary director Terry Gilliam began his career as an animator, and his unique body of work continues to be defined by an attention to aesthetic playfulness and experimentation, as well as a powerful awareness of the graphic potential of the image. It was with Monty Python that he would evolve into a world-class feature film director, starting with MONTY PYTHON AND THE HOLY GRAIL (co-directed with Terry Jones).

Gilliam went on to create a series of fantastic spectacles characterized by striking imagery, bold characterizations and a strong mistrust of authority in films such as TIME BANDITS, BRAZIL, THE ADVENTURES OF BARON MUNCHAUSEN, JABBERWOCKY and his latest, long-awaited masterwork inspired by the classic novel by Miguel de Cervantes. Nearly three decades in development, THE MAN WHO KILLED DON QUIXOTE stars Adam Driver as a cynical advertising director who finds himself trapped in the delusions of an old Spanish shoemaker (Jonathan Pryce) who believes himself to be Don Quixote.

Whether it’s conveying the inner state of a drug-addled but brilliant journalist (FEAR AND LOATHING IN LAS VEGAS) or the angst of a self-loathing shock jock (THE FISHER KING), Terry Gilliam is a master of using the visual to express the emotional.

Series compiled by Gwen Deglise.
