Too much has gone wrong in Gilliam's career to call him a successful director, but he did direct some absolute classics throughout the years. The result is a creative, visually imaginative and ever surprising oeuvre well worth exploring.

Amusing Monty Python film. Like most of Monty Python's work there's not much coherence, the film really is little more than a collection of sketches. Some of them are pretty great, others drag a little. It's a shame the quality isn't a bit more consistent, because there really are some memorable moments.

Worthy but flawed

Gilliam's Don Quixote is finally finished, but I wonder if it was worth the wait. The film takes an awfully long time to get up to steam, Driver is a bit too committed to his role of obnoxious American and Gilliam's fantasy elements feel somewhat scattered and out of focus. The finale is better, but it takes quite a while to get there.
