"Oh look there's a bunch of water down there and that became the thing that which they beat me up weekly after that Oh Gilliam saw the Atlanta just a bunch of water and so you get kind of trapped in what other people think you are right and you become it and it's easy to play along and let them think I'm not stupid but I'm not as smart as them and they feel better about reporting and then also the position occupied as a as the visual guy. Making the cartoon transitions in that connects with something else. You say in the book you talk about not wanting to get to successful that sometimes it's actually helpful to go to have your your career go in waves because you want the freedom to be left alone to do what you. WanNa do able to hold on. One day I might be really successful. It's hope is main some hope because if you're suddenly successful and everything is going well because I'm so reactive to things what it's about I see somebody light I react to it. I actually frightened about liking things. Too much protect myself. I don't WanNa love things too much. I want to keep a safe distance because you strike me as someone who does have that tendency you probably do limit coward because I love so much but the fall is too great. I WANNA keep the fall a shorter distance and so if I aspired too high or too much the all the pain of the fall is what. I'm thinking about all these. There's a documentary coming out about a follow up to las. La Mancha is called he dreams of giants is about the making final making tea Hodie. I've got very mixed feelings about it because it's really about one guy t Gilliam and his suffering and the pain and I don't want I don't like that. I don't complain about the pain. I think that's part of the deal. I think the deal is. It's hard work. It's going to be rough and try to keep things funny and laugh about us away protecting myself as well as making a bearable for other people. This documentary is just an angsty or something. If I'M GONNA be job I'm going to try to suffer more quietly. That's all and it's really bothers me. The title is called the giants but I told him there's a better title he dreams of giants but works with doors. And that's a good title. They're not going to do it because they are so determined to show the pain of my art on the way over here. Another thing I thought about was this. Yates poem that I love. Do you know this poem. It's called the the fascination of what's difficult and he has this it was when he was running the Abbey Theatre in Dublin and it was when he was like ready to give it up and go right a tree which is easier and there's been where he goes he goes my curse on plays that have to be set up a thousand ways the days war with every nave and dolt theater business management of men. I swear before the Don comes comes around again find the stable and pull out the bolt awfully got it. I thought of you and I thought I had well Gilliam staying in it. It would have been easier to draw cartoons maybe as a cartoonish. It was simple piece of paper and pen. I can do it all but once I got into making movies. I love working with other people. Despite the fact there's many navies yet and all sorts but I love it. I love being part of the collaboration of the whole thing. I'm the guy that gets the credit or the blame. That's my job. I think it's really but the reality is it's working with a lot of people. I'm the guy that gets to choose who I work with. Very lucky in that sense. And then if I've got the right gang it's our Bovi I use my daughter not holly my NBA. Who is one of the producers on the final Quixote sheers to fall in that Hollywood trapped of my movie? They people say no matter what they had to do with it and is it no. It's our movie it's always hours but I'll take the blame. Did you always think that way of yourself as kind of like the ringleader of this thing or was there a time when you were more sort of the Otr and then had to emerge into into that more collaborative spirit? I've always worked on my own most of the time and then getting into that point sully were part of a gang but I was the unique one in that one. Because what I did wasn't the CY had more freedom naked. But then when we started working on the Holy Grail and Terry Jones and I were co directing it. That was the moment I realize. Okay I know how to do this stuff and these guys need a lot of persuading and I don't have the patience to keep persuading for each shot. Why we're doing that and that's why didn't direct again. It was easier to get professional actors. Who Thought I knew what I was doing and they did it right. They were to use to being. You're you're seeing level colleagues. Get that was it. We were able all of us but basically in reality. When you make a film you have equality but then you start work with other people who come up with some ideas. I the thing in quixote has been this long journey because at each point new people came on board with different ideas and most of it really came to focus when we actually started finding making the movie we had chosen the people and now we're doing it and now reality is there. You can't escape it. We shot almost the entire film was on location and most it was outside with no weather cover and for once. Nature was nice pleasant but nature nevertheless because we really were very lucky we were so exposed. We got through it but nature does have a great sense of humor. 'cause the ones seen which was our big sane. We've got three hundred fifty extras all of these outrageous costumes. Were burning this thirty meter. High Statue very complicated very dangerous. Everything that was the night rain. Come down that would. Is that the rain. That's in the movie such real because we were prepared because we wrote in real rain or fakery movie rain and really rain and we couldn't shoot stop and I thought okay data. You've got a good sense of your your really suck now. Let's get to the second part of the show. Big thing has video interviews. Our producers have picked quips. I haven't seen it Terry. Hasn't seen it. We're GONNA watch them together and see where we go with the conversation. This is much better than doing normally.

"How do you have a Dulcinea and by having a young girl from this village play? Play the young the girl in the film. Whatever whether she results didn't matter but what that did how she went off to become a star and and ended up being an escort eventually a tart and basically the kept woman of a rich oligarch so she became Dulcinea? Because because Dulcinea in Keighley's world is a really basically a horse who she is and he's he's innocent attitude towards her is. Such is an untouchable thing but we had one ended up with a character who was touchable in the end and in the end. Nobody's actually made any comments about about as Cayote and the news on nucleoside in new Sancho Panza ride off into the sunset Sanchez L.. Woman what is it. What does this mean is an asset? Well maybe she'll turn into cayote this. I don't know the the film. I think the problem for the film for me was kind of like Adam. The expectations people for twenty five years. So it's going to be great. It's gotTa me phenomenal. Why does it have to be great? Why isn't it just the latest film I did and that is? It's not like I had the perfect script and we just had to get it right it. It was just trying to do something that made a film about Donkey Odi whatever and we ended up with a very different story with very different people. And it's better than what we set out to do. But that's necessary what people think that I I just like. I don't want people to have expectations when I go to Bubis and I just wanted to. We agree we say that mantra of ours actually So when you get to see this film folks wipe the slate clean. Yeah that's that's what Terry's asking you because there's been too many reviews who whatever they're saying in the review the last paragraph starts with wasn't really worth Earth waiting thirty years and you know what the answer is going to be. There was one review that said yes but most of you know you know the answer and that's the problem I keep saying it's not a film that I'm wrote thirty years ago that I have. It's a something we worked on an ended up making a film couple years ago and finished budget on time. Yes that's all on budget on time. Ladies and gentlemen but ladies and gentleman not and you find it for have you seen this. We don't want to talk about distribution you do. Oh No let's not keep your eyes and ears open and and Sooner or later through the new means we have now now streaming and downloading and And even old fashioned. DVD's and BLU rays. I believe in those much more than streaming Is the quality's better and you can. I can see it again and now the problem. I think the other thing about so many films Don Quixote falls into that category. It's better the second time and I've heard it from friends. It's really always bothers me because a friend who's worked on many of my films saw Quixote London Film Festival and and she didn't say much outdoors but as usual people. Don't make you feel good. An we had another screening more recently and she saw it again. Should I have to admit Oh. I saw the first time. I didn't get it. I really didn't get Terry. I didn't know what you're doing. I saw it the second time. It's the best film you've ever made. I don't agree with her on either later but it's nice that that affected it happened. Untied Land is same thing because Thailand is a film that is a disturbing film because because it's disturbing and I was issued in Paris about the French journalists had watched it and he I said Okay I saw it. I thought it was terrible. I hated it and then I said and they said because I knew I was going to have to interview you today. I watched the second time. It's wonderful and that's really interesting and a lot of my films have been like that. Where what if? I don't understand what it is. People are expecting expecting the first time because I'm not delivering. What they're expecting is all I know but if they like it enough to look again yeah now I get it? It's just great. It's wonderful that you've arrived at this moment and of course you had your moment when you got a standing ovation at can. I'm sure that was in minutes but no even that see nothing is satisfying. We're getting unbelievably unbelievable. Is the longest in the history of Coun- close and I'm standing doing all byles. Is it about the film or the fact that I I finally made. It is about endurance or the quality of what they just saw. And I still don't know maybe it's everything or nothing. They say they had to fill out. That would be a two-minute standing. I would reckon for fifty best. What are you doing thank you well? We can't thank you enough for stomach. Today Cherries thanks And we love you we love your work and And we encourage people to keep their eyes and ears open. Yes the man who killed Don Quixote. Auty thank you and your social media human. I get on my facebook and post things and let the world know because I've been surrounded especially on this film with some of the worst distribution on the planet and people have no idea. The film is even out there. So I put it on for the fans these to hopefully go and see it and it's this is a new world and skyguide. I think it's very difficult for any independent filmmaker now because the independent distributors distributors do not have the money anymore and they're fighting studios ill-spent eighty million promoting a film Omar and they don't have the money and they keep. Ah they talk about. Oh but people follow our social media. We do it on social media. Don't you've got to know the company that's Putting the film out and you've got to be going to their website. There's nothing else out there so I asked. Why do it on my facebook page? I've got a few fans out there. Yes well pay attention. Yeah hopefully for any of you listening. Make sure you tell your friends. Mr Gilliam would like everyone to see his motion picture. Yes please I I have a family.

"Yes you've you've also landed or discovered if we can use that word people Sort the beginnings innings of their careers Who fulfilled the promise that they showed in your films? I'm thinking first of Sarah Pauly. Who who's talented at three years old yup talented today and talented director? She didn't it didn't learn that skill for me though and learn all the things not to do. It's what it was so just brilliant child and when we were shooting Munchausen she was like the oldest person on the set she was the professional and it was always worrying because we were working weird hours and I think afterwards at some point she was made made several interviews about the dangerous she was in. That was apparent. Bajor wasn't real danger because I'm not gonNA sacrifice whatever main characters it's but so it was great. I get what makes me think about working with kids in in you know in time bandits that in Bush house had been untied lamb with Joe del Fairly and and this was the most extraordinary child she was nine and a half years old. I think Sarah was a half for your older who I did one Chelsea and and you find these kids who are so. They are kids but they're so smart and beyond on their years. I don't know where this comes from and again Joe. Del just made that film work. She's she's the lead she's never offscreen. Hardly and and have a little kid holding it. I just I don't know what it is. It gets totally instinct. When I'm casting I I have some information about them Aw and then we talk at. It's really about. I really like this person. I think it'd be fun to play with in the midst. It's kind of like that. Well that's the perfect motivation. It is important. And if you're going to be honest set and you're creating your world both onscreen and in real life you don't want to be around someone you can't stand. I know you've got to spend time in advance. Sounds to do that. We're talking about the same movie. Yes that's always nothing so that's that I don't have to direct other than saying stand there and move over there. It's it's not like I'm sitting here. Getting performance of somebody by being clever manipulated them. It's just basically being a good audience because with my wide. Angle Lenses is. I've always very close to the actors and I'm right there and I'm a good audience when they're funny. I laugh when the tragic I cry and they can see. It's it's not me sitting back in an airstream trailers some video. You're not in video village in there. And we're communicating really closely. And I don't try to tell them much at all. I just hope that we've talked enough in advance. We understand what we're trying to do. And then we go to work and then an actor in that situation wants to please you. Yeah I mean if you're performing and you're like being a coach I imagine this sport you want the coach to give you words words of approval. You want approbation for what you done. I know I don't I mean what I read about. How Hitchcock deals with actors? Now now I don't know how to do that. I you can just be a buddy there by the one. That intrigued me was fisher. King is Jeff Bridges. I mean it's a great performance but what I didn't know and people tell they don't realize he's doing you to really and when I look at the film his movements. He's not doing me but he's a certain energy in the way of moving at and that's what I do. Well he chose a good inspiration then worked but when you work with somebody like that you're working with with a genius and you just I marvel. I just sit that God. How where's this coming from house? He House yeah. Well he's the best. There is what what impressed you about heath. Ledger Heath Ledger again. I met him. The first thing came up with Nicola Pecker in my DP was doing a film called it was called the Sin Eater and Atlanta and he called me and said this kid is great because we had just unfair so this kid Barron. Johnny said you've got to beat him and so he turned up in In Hollywood and I met him and it was just just one of those things he thought this guy is so tremendous just the aura that came off him and we laughed and played and I thought this is fantastic and it proved to be that he was one of those people. Everybody who met him was amazed. There was something he just gave off vibes. That were so extraordinary and member. One night we were in Prague shooting brothers Grimm and I just dragged about into see a gypsy band at a place where every pizza before and I said. Hey Th- how old are you twenty four. I thought he was like more like thirty thirty. Four he was he seemed older than Matt Damon. And and everybody who spent any time with said this is a very wise soul he he comes from something very far away very deep and he had I think the moment that really hooked me on them with Lysol Monster's ball and the moment before before he kills himself in it. It was so how. Where did this conference? How did he do what he did? Because it's so subtle and simple apple is nothing overly dramatic just hits you just hit you right in the got and and that's what it was like. I remember when Monica Bellucci came on and she was in the makeup department in there was pictures of Matt and he. She didn't know who he was. And who is that. The picture started it and it was just from then on C.. He he he thinks it's I think it's one of the to me. It's one of the really true tragic great on losses. Yeah because I think he was without a doubt going to be the best of his generation. There was nobody close. It had the range he can do comedy he tragedy. It was a romantic lead on every level and it was it was Bearable basically when he got out of that tragedy. And I'm not making light of it in any way. Came an interesting solution to your dilemma of losing your leading man in the magic area. My doctor for gas. Well more in two thousand. You didn't have for the moon back for this film you're right and says it was when he died we we. He just finished shooting in London halfway through the shoot and then we all went our different ways. We went out to Vancouver. He went to New York. And and I'm getting endings ready in Vancouver and my daughter comes in. I was in the art department. Try to save some money off and she said come on you gotta come into. My Office is busy. I can say fifteen thousand dollars here and there was an an all we had was the on her computer. BBC announcing heath debt. And I it just it was impossible. It was impossible to believe because we've just been working together. Thanks and and anyway I was. I said well that's it. I'm I'm going home. This is over because I just love this guy and I just couldn't see anyway of continuing my daughter. Amy Just will not let go you got we got to fix this. We're going to do it. Nicole mine DP the same thing come you gotta do we gotta get somebody else size in the end. I said wait. There's all one actor that could replace heath as far as I'm concerned and I said let's get three and that was hit eh. First person I called was johnny and interviews Johnny Depp and an Johnny said whatever you want I'll be there and and that stopped the retreat retreat of the Finance Finance Insurance Company. Were just the film is over. He and I said my daughter said we got Johnny. Depp agreed to come on and then than Than Jude Law and Colin Farrell. Because I only wanted people that were close to heath friends I was offered some really big names ames. Who wanted to be in there to take over the part and I said no I want Scott family and that's what it was? They did a brilliant job and they worked for nothing they gave their money. All to heath's daughter I mean that's you don't experience things like that very often in show bizz to have that much love and appreciation of One Person Eighth Ledger and and the fact. The film works brilliantly. But it's still the one for me. I would have liked to have seen the film that he thought they were making now or I will never see that but what we made with the three begin. uh-huh was fantastic. They were all because they all knew that they were able just feed off of what they felt about. Heath it was great. And you've three brilliant actors actors mean you know it's it's three as you say it's it's the perfect combination so of all the people that you could choose from who know he happens to be three of the best actors dot the trick is every film. You're doing case you lead is big. Sure you've got a magic mirror. Crucial filmmakers I says my big advice vice. Well it's that aspect of the film is seamless. It's only worth it. So work seems organic and there is a scene in there that has heath in it and he was dead where we shall see We found a real good little trick. we pulled it off and not going to tell you this magic. Get a mild rant on my part I don't want to. I know how everything is made. I understand that some people want to go behind the scenes deep dive but then especially before movie comes out at least if it's come come out and I've seen it then it's not as intensive and experience but I don't WanNa Watch anything where you said. Okay so you know how in this scene will that wasn't unreal boat and that wasn't real and this isn't this isn't this isn't because movies are meant to be magic. Yup and if all I'm doing the entire time saying wow it's a really good magic trick. Then that's not the thing that's what to me is even like I'll go into like CGI work. I don't want it to be seen to be. CGI US all the time but people aren't aware I'm using because it's good magic. Good magic as you look over in this ham but I'm really by right. Head is in another so another nice piece of casting is to see today's man of the moment driver all of the movies in the lead of Your your belly. No Man who killed Don Quixote. I know I mean how many films in at the moment he's a has no life outside aggressively Adam again again my daughter. Amy gets the blame for everything she said out of driver because I had seen Ian Star Wars with him the first Kylo Ren and I thought okay. It's kind of interesting. But it is what it is. And she said this guy's good. And he's bankable see always it's always got to be. And he's bankable say whether it's Robin Williams. And he's Bankable Ed so she arranged a meeting on. We had luncheon a pub in London and I met him. I hadn't seen I've never seen girls. I've I've never even seen Patterson. I had only seen him as Kylo Ren he. Es C Patterson. I will tell..

"This is way back when you doubled you thought about doing pursue doing watchmen way back when. Did you did you ever crack it as a feature? I know there was talk of time expanding into a TV series. Was there? A feature script. You liked. We wrote one and it wasn't good enough. It was again trying to cram too much into two hours. And that's I take at the time. I said it would be better as a TV series because the down the book is very dense and to tell all those stories you need more time than two hours on the screen. I thought. Zack Snyder's beginning was great. And then it just fell apart. But it started. Wow. This is going to be wonderful. The guy's got it. Yeah. And when elsewhere did did you ever get into any casting dream dream scenarios for your watchmen? We were just we were just dealing with a script that point. And seeing if we get go go forward. Yeah. But you like like me because as much as critical of conflict movies often, you you grew up read comics you like comedies. It's not. It's not the source material. It's the interpretations.

"The. Today on happy said confused director, Terry Gilliam finally delivers the man who killed Don Quixote. Hey, guys. I'm Josh Horowitz. Welcome to another addition of happy said confused. Welcome back to my podcast. And today's guests a returning champion five years later. Terry Gilliam has reentered the happy said confused vortex. I can't believe it's been five years crazy, but thrilled to have the great visionary filmmaker. Yes visionary. We I feel like I see that in every trailer for every direct right now. But I'm going to I'm going to give Terry that one. He he deserves the the visionary Monica. I've said this before when he was on the show years ago. Terry Gilliam was a big part of my kind of a waking film fan growing up. One of my first memories of going to see a movie in theater was seeing time bandits which kind of blew my brain out the backs of my head, and and then ever since then so many of his works have meant a lot to me. Whether it's the Fisher king. Baron munchausen? Twelve monkeys so many influential pieces of work, and Brazil, my God, Brazil, and this one the man who killed on Quixote is fascinating project for number of reasons. First of all, it should be said that the finished product is a quality piece of work. I know Terry's had his ups and downs in recent years, some of his films may be haven't been to everybody's liking. I think man who killed Don Quixote, one of his better ones in recent years, this one, of course, stars Adam driver, and Jonathan Pryce, and it is going to begin kind of had unusual release strategy and have a one night only fathom event thing on April tenth, but thankfully, on Friday, April eighteenth, it's going to be out in a bunch of markets around the country, and it's also going to be available on VOD. So you'll have ample opportunity to check out the man who killed on Hyo Tei, and that and for those that followed Terry gilliam's career, you know, how how exciting that is. Because this film just didn't want to be made. Was it had so many false starts every kind of calamity hit this film. Over decades. This has been decades in the making of there's a great documentary actually about the ill-fated of making of an earlier incarnation of this around two thousand called lost lamonica. That's the doctor. You can watch it online and it spree. I recommend that you check it out Walson Mancha chronicles film that was was the star, Johnny Depp. And a actor by the name, Sean Rochefort who is sadly is in the year since passed away. In fact, two different actors were supposed to play Don Quixote passed away in the last couple of decades since this film was in the in the brain of Terry. But it finally finally happened. After a lot of false starts, Terry. Got it across the finish line. And and major props doom for accomplishing that he he. He is such a delight to talk to the sky doesn't give a crap he will say whatever's on his mind about the current state of filmmaking and superhero movies. I will say expected him to sh- crap going to shit just set. It doesn't really matter that the shit on every superhero movie known demand because he has before he actually named checked a recent one that he really dug and it kind of shocked me, so stay tuned for that. But a lot of great stories from Terry in this casting what if of his past work his rotation with making a watchman movie, which I always wonder what that would have been like, oh my God, Terry Gilliam watchmen movie. Could you imagine all the way up to the production and completion of the man who killed on Quixote? So this is a conversation. I was very excited to have. And I hope you guys enjoy it as much as I did elsewhere in the Josh Horowitz universe. What else to say?.

"The first time when it was just super troopers is like nowhere near as good as the brilliance of super troopers because now everyone likes super troopers. So everyone pretends they liked it when it came out. All these critics you look up reviews. Like, no, you hate it. Yeah. I mean, it's just sick. But super troopers two is stupid. But it's really funny and honestly jarring to see a movie with jokes a comedy with jokes. And that's sad and scary to say, but it is a comedy with a ton of jokes. And they don't all work and some of them are real stupid. Some of them are real gross. But it starts with a really funny scene. And it just kind of goes from there. Fred savage, turns up great. Little cameo. There's funny shitting it will Sasso great net. There's great little bit parts for people. And I think those guys are good. I thought beer fest was maybe they're crowning achievement. I never think they're at some sort of a level. But in terms of your second tier comedy, they know how to land a joke. I like what they do. All right. What do you think of the broken lizard, guys? You know, the funny there it's hit and miss like any one of those troops. Yeah. You know? It's they're funny. And then there, and then I'm like, whatever. And then they're funny again, then I'm like, an whatever speaking of which I watched who I'm going to get shit for this. But I wasn't even going to bring this up. But you brought up broken lizard. I watched a retrospective show about mighty Monty python? Yeah. I can't even remember the name of it. But it's something something the best of python. And then it's like all these actors and comedians setting up their favorite sketches. Right. One of which is Jim Carey in yet. Another just a born appearance on camera of him explaining to you. What brilliance is? People. He's fucking guys are not funny money by fate is not funny at all. It is not. It's it's not funny. Watch these sketches and tell me they're funny. It's literally like every sketches like Jim Carrey be like, I love the one where Terry Gilliam sees double. But he's a mountain climber. And then Eric I in the sketch comes in and Terri goes ready. Erica comes in. And Eric was like and tear going like now the two of you there an era. Gotta said it's just one of me here. I okay, then both is get and it's just killing applause breaks. And that's the whole sketch just over and over. So so you say just one of you then. Yeah. Well, then how come I see two of you sad is only what to me could have trouble climbing up that mountain with the two of us together. So there's one of me we might have. It's that's it. That's the whole fucking sketch over. Over and over and over and over my parents, not dead, your parents dead that parent is alive. Don't you? See a lot. It's not a live. It's dead. It's not dead it oh for over at fucking nauseam. Did you enjoy Monty python and the holy grail? Some of it. Why thought the meaning of life was funny? Life is funny. I think portions of the movies are funny. There's there's like at least a character thing to latch onto sure seen I own the the box set of Monty python. And I have not opened force. You have I have seen some of the sketches. I do feel like they're sketches are probably more of their time. I think it's like watching early S and L's super groundbreaking. Then you watch like what the fuck no money. I feel like would be less dated because they're more silly and surreal as opposed to allow go a step further with this just sick. I'm not bashing on the our friends across the pond there. Sure SNL was never funny people go go. Oh, the glory days of SNL, you watch these early the ones in the seventies. You're talking about where people are like. Yeah..

"Adapting something terry gilliam it's the unless you are very very set of specific will turn for television i think it's very strange choice you know they could have adopted okan's of the sohn's fiction traum time travel movies twelve monkeys i don't see how you could replicate this movie in the same while this most green i don't think they were interested in it i wonder if they add an original script that they couldn't figure out an angle to sell they said hey what if we call it twelve markey's because it's i mean there's nothing at least on those first couple of episodes there's nothing about mental illness there's no i mean it takes all about you know ten minutes i think it's maybe the first commercial break before the doctor believes he's a time traveler you know is convinced you know there's all kinds of weird stuff he is changing the future it's a lot of stuff that's just specifically not the movie and so that's why i didn't i didn't keep watching it i may i may give it another try sometime but it just doesn't doesn't really seem like it has much relationship to the movie just doing a little bit of research as we speak as actually based on a spec script to something else called splinter which never was made but then it was it was it went into the offices of the company that produce the original twelve monkeys the movie and they went to cry tv series so that he starting to pull it they seen and twelve monkeys in reaching absolute stikes blinds a lot doesn't it really as i was watching legion i was reminded of the twelve monkeys tv show and i guess it was because of the that legion is quote unquote crazy that has multiple personalities and the whole idea of him being in this institution at at least throughout a lot of the first season of legion i've watched the second season yet so.

"And madeleine's go and madeleine elster i'm sure that's why terry gilliam cast cast those actors just to be a big nerd about it when you talk about how they hide themselves their coats i immediately thought about jeffrey goings in the first time we see him he has his shirt pulled up over his head so he's not even there he's like this headless apparition and then when the guard finally gets his attention he pulls down the shirt and becomes jeffrey goings so it's a nice kind of nod there as well that cartoon when he pulled his head out like these a couple of great comic moments that just get me every time like when they're in the win the the guys tell him that he's mentally divergent he's wearing the tuxedo the bunny slippers and he just introduces himself the coal where he just says i'm not really from outer space oh par cracks me up every time the physical comedy that happens with the pimp character win when coal is beating him with the phone and she's calling his name and he keeps looking over his shoulder and the way that he's like looking over his shoulder but yet beating this guy with the phone and just kind of the the syncopated rhythm of that happening that's one of the best moments in this movie for me is just it's hilarious and it's hilarious and it's super violent all at the same time because we've just seen him beat a guy to death and very similar manner but she's they're calling to him in the way he just keeps looking over in that he's kind of like chided like oh i'm sorry and just to be total nerd i love that there's these connections between this film and then corey maccabi the american astronaut because the guy that plays the pimp who comes in is an actor named joseph mckenna and he is.

"And my favorite of his is probably his most wrote the fisher king i absolutely love that film time bandits i'm telling you i love time bandits as much as i loved et back in the early eighties i watched at movie habitually it was super important to me i thought it was way cooler than the knees because it was dark because terry gilliam does take the story there when he's allowed to when the studio doesn't tamper with them and and mess with his vision he will merge fairy tales and magical realism in all these things that feel like a place to a young audience but then spin it into something that you got to be prepared for they can be very hard hitting and very adult in their themes in their content and i think time man it's certainly the way that movie ended i never forgot that they blew up the parents and i just i never recovered from the way that some people feel about wizard of oz that's how i feel about time boone so i was a fan of his going all the way back to 1982 this this was actually the film that mamia a gilliam fan am i'd seen monty python holy grail but i didn't really in a look into the director anything but you guys are also skip in another big one at such a huge influence for this film i think as brazil though yet yeah that one is i think to this day his most revered you know back in the day i do feel like he was the one to get out of money python probably with the most illustrious career i mean maybe john cleese with fish called wanda but you know he's the american one in that troop i always forget that but when i hear his voice them like that's not british he's the yellow straighter in monty python and he did all the drawings of the foot coming down and crushing all that good stuff he was definitely celebrated early on in stepping away from the troop but he always struggled and i do feel like i call them the most unlucky filmmaker of all time because the things he's had to go through from little bit editing room fight in brazil they released beer and munchausen on the very same day they released timber.
