Gilliam Fucked



Poor Terry Gilliam. I just realized the Death of Heath (that rhymes!) means the Gilliam curse is in full effect:

The future of Terry Gilliam’s “The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus” has been thrown into question following the sudden death of its star Heath Ledger.
[...]
Ledger’s involvement in the project was a key factor in raising the finance. He had a strong relationship with Gilliam from their last pic together, “Brothers Grimm.”

In November 2000, Gilliam was forced to abandon his $32 million indie project “The Man Who Killed Don Quixote” after just a week of shooting, when his star Jean Rochefort was too ill to continue.
Yeah.

has gilliam made a good movie since Time Bandits? The answer of course is no.

I disagree completely. All his movies are good and a few are excellent. Brazil is brilliant. The only Gilliam movie I'd call bad is Jabberwocky.

You are numbskulls all three! (Well, me too, probably).

But we shouldn't forget that the biggest numbskull is the one pictured in this post. I mean, look at him.

Me thinks there's gonna be a lot of so-called "numbskulling" today.
