Every Terry Gilliam film creates its own unique world, fuelled by obsession and fantasy, yet realized with meticulous craftsmanship and dark humour. From the medieval mock-epic Monty Python and the Holy Grail to the part-mythic, part-paranoid worlds of The Fisher King, Twelve Monkeys and Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Gilliam has pursued a totally personal, uncompromising vision. The resulting clashes with producers and studios have led to legendary battles, notably over The Adventures of Baron Munchausen and Brazil, which is now considered an all-time classic.

In these specially recorded interviews with Ian Christie, Gilliam reflects on how his Midwestern childhood and early career as a cartoonist and animator prepared him to make powerful, idiosyncratic films that are unlike anything else in contemporary cinema.
