There are visual directors and then there is Terry Gilliam. There isn’t anyone quite like Gilliam out there. He puts an indelible mark on every film he makes. I maintain that a most fans can identify a Terry Gilliam film strictly looking at one frame from any film he’s ever done. I wish he was able to make more films. In a just world, he’d never have to struggle to make a film. Although one has to wonder if the struggle to make each film adds to it’s greatness.
Either way, I can’t wait to see ‘Zero Theorem’. Christophe Waltz seems to be on Gilliam’s wavelength like few others have been previously. It looks like he’s on another planet with Johnny Depp in Fear and Loathing and Brad Pitt in ’12 Monkeys’. He’s looks like he’s completely lost his mind out there and I’m dying to join him for the ride.
