    Terry Gilliam Short "The Wholly Family" To Screen Online on January 23

    It'd be a mistake for anyone to call one-time Monty Python member Terry Gilliam a conventional filmmaker, but with his new short, "The Wholly Family," the imaginative director is now trying something completely different: an online screening of the film, made possible by sponsor The Guardian.

    Marrakech Film Festival '11: Terry Gilliam Says Ewan McGregor No Longer Involved In 'Don Quixote'

    While the documentary "Lost in La Mancha" drew many comparisons between Terry Gilliam and Cervantes' classical hero, who featured in the director's film "The Man Who Killed Don Quixote," the aborted making of which 'La Mancha' followed, it's perhaps not the most appropriate literary comparison. Inst...

    Grumpy Terry Gilliam Unloads on Various Filmmakers, Films

    If there's one thing we know for sure, it's that Terry Gilliam is really, really grumpy. And or at least, very hilariously candid. Maybe it's the fact that he's constantly marginalized, besides having the oversized imagination and actor loyalty that would (you'd think) make him a...

    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.
