Perhaps what is most interesting/sad is getting a glimpse at how amazing The Man Who Killed Don Quixote could have been.

Unfortunately a catalogue of catastrophes plagued the film in the first week of shooting, from the set being buzzed by F-16s to the star being diagnosed with a double hernia. Not to ...
