Edith Walks Review

20 June 2017 3:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Linda Marric

Director Andrew Kötting’s latest Psycho-geographical feature offers up far more questions than it is likely to answer, and his many fans wouldn’t want to have it otherwise. Edith Walks is a brilliantly shambolic and wonderfully ramshackle adventure which reconciles it audiences with the weird and wonderful world of King Harold’s “handfast” wife Edith The Fair (Edith Swan Neck), who alone was able to identify his mutilated body as he lay dead after the battle of Hastings in 1066.

Featuring author Iain Sinclair and with a truly impressive performance from brilliantly eclectic singer Claudia Barton as Edith herself, the film is a pilgrimage of sorts which seeks to retrace Harold’s lover’s journey from Waltham Abbey in Essex via Battle Abbey to St Leonards-On-Sea to be reconnected with her dead king.

Accompanied by a merry band of weird and wonderful characters, Kötting uses a super »

After 17 years, has Terry Gilliam finally broken the curse of Don Quixote?

6 June 2017 8:57 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Despite lead actors falling ill and sets washed away in flash floods, the director’s Cervantes film is finally in the can. But will a movie that has lingered in development hell be worth the wait?

Terry Gilliam has finished The Man Who Killed Don Quixote.” It’s a sentence that anyone familiar with this most prolonged of movie-making sagas would never have expected to read. Over its gestation period of two decades, the Monty Python man’s doomed attempt to bring Cervantes’s “unfilmable” novel to the screen has become one of the most famous examples of development hell. It has inspired numerous articles and even a documentary about its disastrous production, as well as hushed rumours that both the film and Gilliam were cursed.

Even when Don Quixote first went into pre-production, way back in 1998, it seemed destined for trouble. Gilliam had put together a wildly ambitious script »

Terry Gilliam's "Quixote" is Complete

5 June 2017 5:00 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Chris here, with some heartwarming news: a film nearly twenty years in the making has finally wrapped filming. You'll remember Terry Gilliam's ill-fated attempts to adapt Cervantes's legendary Don Quixote to the big screen as they were told in the documentary Lost in La Mancha - floods, lost funding, and casting woes made this film one of the most notorious productions of all time.

But now Terry Gilliam's The Man Who Killed Don Quixote will rise from the ashes of cinema history. Gilliam has completed filming - with a new cast that includes Adam Driver, Jonathan Price, and Stellan Skarsgård - and Amazon will bring the film to theatres sometime next year. Someone please protect the digital print (or film, if Gilliam went that route) from any mishandling so that Gilliam isn't put through the ringer again!

Terry Gilliam’s ‘The Man Who Killed Don Quixote’: 6 Pivotal Moments in the ‘Cursed’ Passion Project

5 June 2017 12:48 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

After 17 years, Terry Gilliam’s “The Man Who Killed Don Quixote” has finally turned the corner from cursed film project to completed movie, a historic and improbable milestone that has many people asking, “Is it really true?” One of the most troubled productions in the history of cinema, the project has been tormenting Gilliam for more than 25 years, since he first started tinkering with a screenplay adaptation in 1991.

Despite several false starts over the years, Gilliam never bought into the idea that the project was doomed. “The curse is bullshit,” he said during an interview with IndieWire at the Cannes Film Festival in 2016, a year that also marked the 400th anniversary of the death of “Don Quixote” writer Miguel de Cervantes.

Terry Gilliam Finishes Shooting Don Quixote After 17 Years

5 June 2017 12:23 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

It took nearly two decades, 17 years to be exact, but filmmaker Terry Gilliam has finally wrapped production on his passion project, The Man Who Killed Don Quixote. The filmmaker took to social media to announce that filming is finished, while posting one final photo from the set before returning home. Here's what the filmmaker had to say on his Facebook page about the production wrap.

"Sorry for the long silence. I've been busy packing the truck and am now heading home. After 17 years, we have completed the shoot of The Man Who Killed Don Quixote. Muchas gracias to all the team and believers. Quixote Vive!"

Terry Gilliam made this statement on Facebook, while posting a photo of a truck on the set, and another of a "Happy Ending Rainbow over Los Suenos, Don Quixote's village of dreams." The director first started working on the film in 1989, and had originally »

Terry Gilliam Wraps On The Man Who Killed Don Quixote

5 June 2017 10:45 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Way, way back in 1998, Brazil and Twelve Monkeys director Terry Gilliam embarked on making The Man Who Killed Don Quixote, a very Gilliam-esque take on Miguel de Cervantes’ 16th century novel Don Quixote. With the original novel concerning an insane Spanish nobleman thinking himself to be a knight bringing back chivalry and justice to the world, Gilliam’s vision saw Johnny Depp as a 21st century marketing executive thrown back in time, and being mistaken for Quixote’s sire, Sancho Panza. Production began in September of 2000, quickly becoming one of the most disastrous shoots of all time. As chronicled in the documentary Lost in La Mancha, weather problems, nervous investors, and even the Spanish military added to the movie’s production woes. The final nail in the coffin came when Dox Quixote himself, Jean Rochefort, was diagnosed with a double herniated disc after attempting to act while riding a horse, »

Terry Gilliam Finally Wraps 'Don Quixote' Project After 17 Years

5 June 2017 5:20 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Some 17 years after he first started pre-production, Terry Gilliam has finally wrapped principal photography on The Man Who Killed Don Quixote, a project once so notoriously beleaguered and stuck in near-mythical "development hell" that a documentary was even made about it. 

Starring Adam Driver, Jonathan Pryce, Stellan Skarsgard and Olga Kurylenko, the film — inspired by Miguel De Cervantes' literary classic Don Quixote — has been shooting on location across Spain and Portugal, and tells the story of a deluded old man, convinced he is the famed horse-riding hero and who mistakes an advertising executive for »

Terry Gilliam’s 17 year passion project, The Man Who Killed Don Quixote, finally wraps filming

5 June 2017 4:06 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Zehra Phelan

Terry Gilliam’s 17-year passion project, The Man Who Killed Don Quixote starring Adam Driver and Jonathan Pryce has finally wrapped principal photography in Madrid.

A tale of fantasy and adventure inspired by the legendary protagonist of Miguel De Cervantes’ literary classic Don Quixote, The Man Who Killed Don Quixote tells the story of a deluded old man who is convinced he is Don Quixote, and who mistakes Toby, an advertising executive, for his trusty squire, Sancho Panza. The pair embarks on a bizarre journey, jumping back and forth in time between the 21st and magical 17th century. Gradually, like the infamous knight himself, Toby becomes consumed by the illusory world and unable to determine his dreams from reality. The tale culminates in a phantasmagorical and emotional finale where Toby takes on the mantle of Don Quixote de la Mancha.

Terry Gilliam wraps production on The Man Who Killed Don Quixote

4 June 2017 1:21 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Well, here’s some news you probably never thought you’d read: Terry Gilliam has taken to Facebook to announce that he’s wrapped production on his long-gestating passion project The Man Who Killed Don Quixote!

Gilliam has spent the best part of two decades trying to get his adaptation of Miguel de Cervantes’ classic novel off the ground. He came close in 2000 with a cast that included Jean Rochefort as Don Quixote and Johnny Depp as his lead character Toby, only for the production to encounter numerous difficulties before it was eventually abandoned (and documented in the 2002 film Lost in La Mancha).

This take on the project stars Jonathan Pryce (Game of Thrones) as Quixote and Adam Driver (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) as Toby, while the rest of the cast includes Olga Kurylenko (Quantum of Solace), Stellan Skarsgård (Avengers: Age of Ultron), Joana Ribeiro (A Uma Hora Incerta »

Terry Gilliam Wraps Production on ‘The Man Who Killed Don Quixote’ After 17 Years

4 June 2017 9:38 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Terry Gilliam finally knocked down the windmill. After nearly two decades of work, several failed attempts and any number of different actors attached to the project, “The Man Who Killed Don Quixote” has finally wrapped production. Gilliam — whose efforts to loosely adapt Miguel de Cervantes’ timeless novel inspired the documentary “Lost in La Mancha” — marked the occasion with a celebratory Facebook post.

“Sorry for the long silence. I’ve been busy packing the truck and am now heading home,” he wrote. “After 17 years, we have completed the shoot of The Man Who Killed Don Quixote. Muchas gracias to all the team and believers. Quixote Vive!” »

‘The Man Who Killed Don Quixote’ Hits Yet Another Snag as Production Company Deems It ‘Patently Illegal’

21 May 2017 10:36 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The Man Who Killed Don Quixote” has had so much trouble getting made that it would almost be a letdown if the long-gestating project ever sees the light of day. Terry Gilliam has been tilting at windmills for nearly 20 years at this point, and now the film has hit a new snag: Alfama Films released a statement on Friday deeming it “patently illegal.”

Alfama’s Paulo Branco spoke to the Hollywood Reporter at Cannes, accusing Gilliam of “clandestinely” working on the film behind his back and even “pursuing the production with other partners.” Whether true or not, such a strange state of affairs is certainly apropos of the Cervantes’ charmingly (and tragically) out-of-his-depth knight errant.

Spanish Broadcasters Bankroll Film Growth

19 May 2017 7:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

While Hollywood might have moved away from producing mid-budget movies for adults, Spain has moved in. Two broadcaster-backed production houses, Mediaset España’s Telecinco Cinema and Atresmedia Cine, can now create event movies that can blow even Hollywood’s biggest blockbusters out of the water in Spain.

They have snagged Academy Award nominations, including for Naomi Watts in “The Impossible,” and yielded some of the world’s highest-grossing independent movies; “The Impossible” garnered $180 million worldwide. Though all made out of Spain, given their high budgets, they attract Hollywood partners, especially if shot in English. Produced by Apaches Ent., Telecinco Cinema and Peliculas La Trini, “A Monster Calls” was financed and distributed by Focus Features, River Road, Participant Media and Lionsgate.

They also look set to yield some of Spain’s biggest international sellers, such as Telecinco Cinema’s upcoming “Marrowbone,” a Cannes 2016 sales hit for Lionsgate.

Tim Blake Nelson to Star in ‘The True Don Quixote’

8 May 2017 4:30 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Tim Blake Nelson is starring as the title character in the movie “The True Don Quixote,” a modern-day version based on the classic novel by Miguel de Cervantes.

Shooting began Monday near New Orleans with Chris Poche (“Over The Hedge”) directing from his own script. Jacob Batalon (“Spiderman: Homecoming”) is co-starring as Sancho Panza.

Producers are Trey Burvant through Charthouse Films and Jason Waggenspack through his Neutral Ground Films.

The story is centered on a man who’s safe and comfortable and bored to death with his life. In his state of despair, the stories of passion and pain change his mind until he awakens insane, anointing himself as Don Quixote to find adventure, fame and glory that will make his life worthwhile — while never leaving his one-mile square neighborhood.

Don Quixote,” published in two parts in 1605 and 1615, centers on a Spanish nobleman who loses his sanity as he seeks to revive chivalry. »

Tribeca Film Review: ‘The Trip to Spain’

25 April 2017 8:01 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Trip to Spain” is the third entry in the cult series of culinary road comedies featuring Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon as thinly fictionalized versions of their scalding, misanthropically funny, showbiz-fixated London-comedian-actor selves. The first thing to say about the film is that it’s utterly of a piece with “The Trip” (2010) and “The Trip to Italy” (2014); if you’re a fan of the first two movies, it’s hard to imagine that you won’t like this one. (Each is a boiled-down version of a six-episode TV series made for the BBC, all of them directed by Michael Winterbottom.) This time, Coogan and Brydon spend five days driving up the misty green Spanish coastline, staying in rustic designer hotels and sampling New Traditional restaurants — which Brydon has arranged to review for The New York Times — against a backdrop of absurdly tranquil and picturesque towns and villages.

Tribeca Review: ‘The Trip to Spain’ is a Wholehearted, Hilarious Excursion

23 April 2017 6:23 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Averting the bigger is better approach that plagues most franchises, The Trip series is attuned to life’s simple pleasures: cuisine, comedy, and companionship. For Michael Winterbottom, Steve Coogan, and Rob Brydon, their third outing, The Trip to Spain, refreshingly doesn’t stray from the charismatic formula that has resulted in perhaps the most delightful series of films this decade.

Sparing little narrative formalities, as has become part and parcel for these expeditions, Coogan, having concluded a series with Martin Scorsese, and Brydon, eager to take a break from child-rearing duties, set off on another assignment, this time heading to the southwest of Europe. Coogan takes on a Cervantes-inspired “Don Quixote”-esque journey as he reads Laurie Lee’s “As I Walked Out One Midsummer Morning” and attempts to write his own book about his voyage, while Brydon is once again filing restaurant reviews. Aside from the expected, but still as-hilarious-as-ever host of impressions, »

Fahrenheit 451

18 April 2017 2:49 PM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

 

François Truffaut’s adaptation of Ray Bradbury’s dystopian, illiterate future looks better than ever, but the scary part is that some of its oddest sci-fi extrapolations seem to be coming true. It’s a movie that truly grows on one. The Bernard Herrmann music score is one of the composer’s very best.

Reappearing Fireflies: Bruce Baillie in Vienna

20 March 2017 8:20 PM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Bruce Baillie. Courtesy of Lux. The first time he saw Bruce Baillie, a fiery Peter Kubelka recounted in front of an amused audience at the Austrian Film Museum, the American filmmaker was pulling off a headstand in a classroom before taking his students out on the campus to collect garbage. In the filmmaking of Baillie and his organization Canyon Cinema, which was showcased from January 30 to February 3 in five programs curated by Garbiñe Ortega, ideas of life and community are transformed into sounds, colors and film. Sometimes those ideas exceed the films. As Mr. Baillie has put it himself in an interview with Richard Corliss in 1971, “I always felt that I brought as much truth out of the environment as I could, but I’m tired of coming out of. . . . I want everybody really lost, and I want us all to be at home there. Something like that. Actually I am not interested in that, »

For some time now I have known that Jonathan Pryce had replaced Michael Palin in Terry Gilliam's so infamous it's infamously infamous, The Man Who Killed Don Quixote. I almost told you, but... let's just say that the production are trying to keep their heads down and I didn't want to knock them off their game. Now, though, Pryce's name has been added to the site of Entre Chien et Loup, one of the film's production companies so, by my record, that's public domain: http://www. »
