Lost in La Mancha back to product details

The windmills of reality attack Terry Gilliam

Lost in La Mancha was originally intended as an extra on the eventual The Man Who Killed Don Quixote DVD, but instead became a document of the film crashing and burning. This is a must-see for anyone with the slightest interest in filmmaking or who is a fan of Terry Gilliam (most people who belong to one group belong to the other), it shows that filmmaking is not always fun or glamourous and gives us tantalizing glimpses of what should have been another Time Bandits or Brazil or The Adventures of Baron Munchausen.

In the long run, hopefully the most useful thing this documentary will do will be to help Gilliam make a second attempt at putting the movie in his head on film for the rest of us to see.
