Terry Gilliam entered my life the same way he probably did for everyone else, through Monty Python. Even though Monty Python is a major part of Terry Gilliam’s career it’s not the only thing he has done. He has done some small fantasy like the box office failure The Brothers Grimm. Even thought Terry Gilliam will always be known as the king of British humor via Monty Python, I hope he can make a name for himself in the fantasy genre. He might have failed big time with The Brothers Grimm but I think the future could bring greatness. To tell you the truth, I am kind of looking forward to see Terry Gilliam’s new movie The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus, but that might be because it’s Heath Ledger last movie; either way Terry Gilliam will always make my list of favorite directors even if it just for his work on Monty Python.
They Shoot Pictures, Don’t They?
