5.0 out of 5 stars Gilliam - an honest, fascinating and brilliant auteur, 17 Aug 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Gilliam on Gilliam (Directors on Directors) (Paperback)
This is one of the best of Faber and Faber's directors 'on' series, enriched by Gilliam's incredibly entertaining and articulate views on his films. He frequently surprises us with his honesty concerning his previous films and what he views as his past failures. Arguably the most fascinating parts of the books are his discussions of his best films, notably The Time Bandits, Brazil and Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. This is a incredibly refreshing read, resurrecting the belief in the potential of the filmmaker as auteur, from a man whose works, even if you dislike them, are amongst the greatest visions of the twentieth century.
