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.
The Zero Theorem
The Meaning of Life
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.
The Man Who Killed Don Quixote
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.
