A true insight into the nightmares of making a Hollywood feature. Every cliche imaginable becomes Gilliam's nightmare: constant studio interference, petulant actresses, controlling Director of Photography, sackings galore. When Gilliam makes a movie you just know the production will unfold like a long drawn out car crash and it makes for exciting compelling reading. Gilliam is the General Patton of the movie industry and if you have any aspirations whatsoever to be a movie maker, this book will pretty much put you off for life... But double your respect for the most visionary director since Stanley Kubrick.
