Terry Gilliam

Terry Gilliam (born November 22, 1940) is a film director.

Erstwhile member of Monty Python's Flying Circus, and principal artist-animator of the surreally bizarre cartoons with which it was frequently interspersed, Terry Gilliam has gone on to become a film director. Gilliam's Brazil is known among cineastes as a drastic example of things that can go wrong when a director does not have final cut[?] and the studio steps in to "take control" of a situation it sees as spiralling out of control; Gilliam's battles with the studio are notorious and well documented.

Gilliam is a graduate of Occidental College in Los Angeles.

Films directed:

Gilliams' unsuccessful efforts to film The Man Who Killed Don Quixote[?], based on Miguel Cervantes' Don Quixote, was the subject of the documentary Lost in La Mancha[?].
