A tantalizing memorial to what could have been that comes right from the very heart of the action, the hugely acclaimed Lost in La Mancha offers a frank, often hilarious and frequently painful account of some of the disasters, natural and otherwise, that befell director Terry Gilliam's attempt to film The Man who killed Don Quixote. Despite an all-star cast including Johnny Depp, Vanessa Paradis and Jean Rochefort, and one of cinema's most inventive directors at the helm (Brazil, The Fisher King, Twelve Monkeys), Gilliam's ambitious project was forced to shut down after only six days of production.
The Stuff of Dreams
- Lost in La Mancha review by CP Customer
This is a film about Terry Gilliam's attempt to realise his dream of making a film about "Don Quixote" so is really for the film buffs amongst us. It was a bold, imaginative project and one is left hoping that Terry Gilliam makes it one day because it would be a breathtaking film to watch.
