    Style Or Substance? 20 Visually Stunning Movies That Go For Broke

    No matter what you think of Baz Luhrmann's "The Great Gatsby," opening this week in ultra-luxurious 3D, one thing's for sure – it looks pretty spectacular. Filled with lovingly crafted costumes, opulent sets, and computer generated imagery that makes ragtime New York seem like a quasi-futuristic met...

    Terry Gilliam Working On An Adaptation Of Paul Auster's 'Mr. Vertigo'

    Perhaps no other filmmaker in recent memory is as talked about for the films they didn't make, as opposed to the ones they did, than director Terry Gilliam. But, you have to admire the man's perseverance. We're now coming on two years since "The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus" and Gilliam has yet to mount another film, not that he hasn't been busy. He's done a couple of food and drink sponsored short films -- "The Legend of Hallowdega" and "The Wholly Family" -- knocked out a webcast for Arcade Fire, and more recently put on a terrific stage version of "The Damnation Of Faust." But it's those old projects that keep coming back to the surface...

    As 'The Dark Tower' Crumbles, Here Are 10 Dead Projects In Search Of Resurrection

    One of the more ambitious projects in recent memory, "The Dark Tower," was canceled earlier this week by Universal Pictures. It's not a surprise, as the studio also recently put the kibosh on a $150 million-budgeted R-rated take on "At the Mountains of Madness" by Guillermo del Toro and Ron Howard, and Akiva Goldsman's multi-platform, multi-film Stephen King adaptation was arguably more risky and definitely much more expensive. We here at The Playlist root for movies to be good, but we mostly root for movies to be made, for a director to complete their vision and for it to have a chance to reach an audience and possibly become a part of the p...

    Terry Gilliam on 'Don Quixote': I Would Say "Fuck This, Except It's The Best Script I’ve Got"

    Is Robert Duvall Out?While recent years haven't been kind to filmmaker Terry Gilliam or his art, we love the dude (no, really) because he's a maverick and he's very outspoken. He has seen a lot of ups and downs since 2002's "Lost in La Mancha" which documented his heartbreaking attempt at getting hi...

    Stage Review: Terry Gilliam's Opera 'The Damnation of Faust' Is A Return To Form & Then Some

    We've made no bones about our disappointment in Terry Gilliam's recent work. We absolutely have sympathy for the behind-the-scenes troubles that the helmer's suffered in recent years, with a string of bad luck almost unmatched among filmmakers, but unfortunately the work that has made it to the scre...

    Will Terry Gilliam's 'The Defective Detective' Finally Hit The Big Screen?

    If there was a small sect of loose changers that devised a conspiracy theory concerning otherworldly powers preventing Terry Gilliam from catching a break in his profession, we might be inclined to become believers.

    First Look: Terry Gilliam's Short Film 'The Wholly Family'; Will Premiere At Bradford Film Festival

    Before he gets to his stint at the English National Opera this spring, directing "The Damnation Of Faust," helmer Terry Gilliam will get his latest short film venture, "The Wholly Family," in the can. First announced last year, the film stars Cristiana Capotondi, Douglas Dean, Nicolas Connolly and Sergio Solli and is being shot on location in Italy, and not without good reason. The film is being sponsored by pasta company Garofalo as part of an annual series of films about Naples, and while details of what it's about have been kept under wraps, the project does have an original script by Gilliam and is not based off the Eve Merriam poem of th...

    While he spent most of the year struggling to mount his cursed project "The Man Who Killed Don Quixote," Terry Gilliam certainly hasn't been sitting idle, rocking a webcast for Arcade Fire in August, directing an energy drink mini-movie thing “The Legend Of Hallowdega,” and he’s currently gearing up...
