Terry Gilliam wanted to make a movie about Don Quixote, but failed. He's one of my favorite directors. I especially liked his Monty Python stuff, 'Time Bandits', 'The Fisher King', and '12 Monkeys'. When I inadvertantly rented 'TFK' and '12M' in the same weekend, I saw clearly his exploration of the theme of sanity and insanity. To put it another way, when is it more sane to be insane?
Question: how in the heck did he get born in Minneapolis?
(Alas, I forgot who I got the Guardian link from. If you remember, let me know.)
