People who’ve seen the documentary Lost in La Mancha know about director Terry Gilliam’s ill-fated efforts to bring the story of Don Quixote to the screen. That film reported on just one of many attempts by Gilliam to bring the story of Quixote to life. Now he’s announced a seventh attempt to complete the seemingly jinxed project.
Terry Gilliam is nothing if not determined. The Monty Python alumni has been doggedly resolute in striving to get his vision of the classic Miguel de Cervantes story “the Misadventures of Don Quixote” made since the 1990s. His script, “The Man Who Killed Don Quixote” has been a near-obsession of his for almost 20 years. He’s had six failed attempts to realize his dream project and now he’s trying again. You have to admire his stick-to-it-iveness.
