‘Man Who Killed Don Quixote’ Review: Terry Gilliam Tilts at Windmills and Wins

‘Man Who Killed Don Quixote’ Review: Terry Gilliam Tilts at Windmills and Wins
It’s been plagued by endless delays, natural disasters, dying actors, greedy financiers and good old-fashioned Icarus-level hubris. It’s been called one of the most cursed film productions ever. Most folks assumed that Terry Gilliam’s “Don Quixote” project would never, ever be made, much less see the light of day. (This demographic included the director himself.) And, having finally slouched its way to completion and a contested premiere at Cannes in 2018, The Man Who Killed Don Quixote knows that an against-the-odds backstory is as much a marketing tool

The Fourth Wall Podcast: Terry Gilliam Never Gave Up on The Man Who Killed Don Quixote

Michael Ahr Matthew Schuchman Apr 12, 2019

Visionary director Terry Gilliam talks with us about his view of filmmaking and what it took to complete The Man Who Killed Don Quixote.

It seems that director Terry Gilliam can't escape the narrative that The Man Who Killed Don Quixote has been a film 30 years in the making, even though his final effort only encompassed the last few years with a modified story and new actors, Jonathan Pryce and Adam Driver. We had the opportunity to speak to the director for The Fourth Wall, our interview podcast, about the evolution of his film and the final version of the long-suffering tale that ultimately ended up on the screen.

In addition to discussing The Man Who Killed Don Quixote, Gilliam addresses issues such as the use of special effects, the freedom enjoyed by his peers in streaming television, the omniprescence of Marvel movies, and his

The Man Who Killed Don Quixote Review

Terry Gilliam’s near-mythical movie finally arrives on the screen. Was it worth the wait?

We’ve all experienced that sensation of something sounding or looking good in our heads -- a note we wanted to write to someone, a story we wanted to pen, perhaps even a film we wanted to make -- and then the disappointment of it actually coming to existence on the page or screen and the thing not being exactly how we envisioned it in the seclusion of our minds.

In a strange way, Terry Gilliam’s The Man Who Killed Don Quixote -- a film that the maverick director of Brazil and 12 Monkeys has been attempting to make for three decades -- engenders the same sensation in the viewer. After all these years, and with the movie’s almost legendary status as the one that kept getting away, one can’t help but wonder if all the time,

Terry Gilliam on the Evolution of ‘The Man Who Killed Don Quixote’ and the Weight of Expectations

Terry Gilliam wonders if The Man Who Killed Don Quixote can live up to its larger than life production trouble. The trouble is due to the insecurities Quixote faced being an independent production, but that independence is also how Gilliam’s kept the project alive long after a studio would have scrapped it.

The movie’s storied production history is well-documented, including Amazon’s last-minute decision to pull out of the project when producer Paulo Branco claimed rights to the film, which nearly derailed their 2018 premiere at the Cannes Film Festival.

In our conversation with Gilliam we discuss how Jonathan Pryce’s Don Quixote built his own ramshackle armor, how directing is like being “an ignorant peasant who knows no better,” and his feelings about Fathom Event’s one-night-only screening strategy.

Terry Gilliam on the Madness of Don Quixote

Terry Gilliam on the Madness of Don Quixote
It’s been 30 years since Terry Gilliam first dreamt of making a movie about the foolish, windmill-chasing knight Don Quixote — and it’s been roughly 29 years since it became his nightmare. As the tragicomic documentary Lost in La Mancha proved, Gilliam’s Quixote picture is the dictionary definition of a cursed movie, plagued by financial troubles, ailing actors and noisy fighter jets flying overhead. But now he’s finally broken the spell, and The Man Who Killed Don Quixote last year received a marathon standing ovation at Cannes.

Terry Gilliam Finally Got To Make “The Man Who Killed Don Quixote”

You’d be forgiving for thinking I’m pulling your leg and telling a belated April Fool’s Day joke when I talk about having seen The Man Who Killed Don Quixote. The long time passion project of Terry Gilliam has seemed so cursed and impossible to get off the ground, it even inspired a well received documentary in Lost in La Mancha. Having started work on this outing back in the late 1980’s, it’s been a full lifetime bringing The Man Who Killed Don Quixote to life. This week, it’s finally going to be available for public consumption, in part through Fathom Events. Those of you who have long been curious about it can rest easy…it’s good! The film is an adventure with a mix of comedy and drama elements thrown in, as only Gilliam can put forth. Toby (Adam Driver) is a deeply cynical but highly regarded director.

The Man Who Killed Don Quixote Review

It was quite something sitting down to watch this film. Few films have had such a difficult, and well-documented journey to the big screen as this one. The playful opening credits allude to this arduous parturition, and it was with no small buzz of delight that Terry Gilliam finally brings The Man Who Killed Don Quixote to audiences.

This is not the film Gilliam set out to make at the end of the turn of the century. However the shadow of the beleaguered and painful production has worked its way into the fabric of this new narrative. What unfolds is a mesmerising absurdist fantasy, as much a satire of the modern filmmaking process as it is a quest for identity on the constantly shifting sands of sanity. It is visually stunning, emotionally powerful and handmade in the best possible way.

Ostensibly it is the story of a film director (Adam Driver

The Long Journey of The Man Who Killed Don Quixote

Matthew Schuchman Apr 10, 2019

We spoke to Terry Gilliam about the decades-long process of bringing his The Man Who Killed Don Quixote to the screen.

I became a film fanatic at the early age of 10. No, it wasn’t after watching Star Wars for the first time or from gorging on Back to the Future. It was One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest that drew me in. However, what really changed my entire world were the works of Terry Gilliam. Whether it was the stylized brilliance of “The Crimson Permanent Assurance” (the short film that plays before Monty Python’s The Meaning of Life) or the whimsical journey of Time Bandits, I started to realize that deep and meaningful stories didn’t need to be told strictly through dark and dour dramas. And then I saw Brazil, and nothing else mattered anymore. I don’t have to run down the rest

‘The Man Who Killed Don Quixote’ Review: Terry Gilliam Completes His Chaotic Journey With Mixed Results

Throughout his career as a director, Terry Gilliam has aimed to portray the outlandish and disorderly in imaginative, transportive ways. His greatest achievements are less about narrative coherence than an emotional attachment to a character’s eccentric journey through various stages of bewilderment. His long-burning passion project The Man Who Killed Don Quixote–finally seeing the light of day some 30 years later–clearly aims to be an epic descent into chaos, but the adventure often has trouble conveying a sense of entertaining spectacle to go along with the frivolous bafflement.

Starting things off right in the casting department, Adam Driver plays Toby Grisoni, a jaded director of glitzy ad spots who, ten years prior, made a black-and-white student film titled The Man Who Killed Don Quixote nearby the Spanish village he and his crew are now occupying. While making a new commercial also featuring the characters of Don Quixote and Sancho Plaza,

April Foolish Predictions #4: Best Supporting Actor

Previously: Animated Features, Foreign Films, Sound & Music, Prediction Index

What will the Supporting Actor race look like this year? Will it be awash in "comebacks"? Perhaps it'll lean into fresh cinematic faces? Maybe it'll be a year of long-awaited first nominations for thespians who've had rich careers? Most likely, as with each Oscar year before it, it'll be some random combo of all three but determining who the five men will be this early is nigh impossible. Why is that? Well, there are a few reasons...

Adam Driver Goes Crazy in Scene From Terry Gilliam’s ‘Man Who Killed Don Quixote’
As police transport two fugitives across the Spanish countryside, they encounter a man dressed in armor (Jonathan Pryce) on a horse in a clip from Terry Gilliam’s decades-in-the-making upcoming film The Man Who Killed Don Quixote.

“Carnival is over, old man,” one of the cops shouts. When the knight leans over, his face brightens: “Sancho! I am Don Quixote de la Mancha, and I command you to release my squire, Sancho Panza.” The cops make fun of him, as the man Quixote calls Sancho (Adam Driver) ducks in the backseat.
