You know those feature length behind-the-scenes documentaries that sometimes come in a two-disc dvd set? Well, this is that second disc. The only difference here is that there was no actual movie to begin with. It's like witnessing the destruction of a movie from the inside out.

A heart breaking look at the difficult life of a film maker - especially one whose imagination is bigger than Hollywood. Though the story of the constant hardships Gilliam has endured just to see his movies completed (and in some cases fail) is fascinating, you need not be a fan. Anyone with an interest in Don Quixote, or the artistic process behind movies will come out of it with something. Perhaps what is most interesting/sad is getting a glimpse at how amazing The Man Who Killed Don Quixote could have been.

Failing to get financial backing from Hollywood because of the shadow of his one heroic failure Baron Munchausen looming over his head (despite the fact that he had made financial successes before and since), he tried to make the film using European money and although he was forced to work with half the budget he would have liked, it was actually shaping up quite nicely. 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 ...
