Fear and Loathing is Gilliam for sure.

Not to mention:

Monty Python's Holy Grail
Time Bandits
The Fisher King

Last I heard he was working on The Real Inspector Hound

I love his trademark cinematography...really one of those filmmakers whose style you can recognize as distinctive and unique

Yup.

The theme of the converging worlds of fantasy and reality seem to run throughout his films. Fisher King, Brazil and 12 Monkeys are all very similar in that their respective protagonists all wrestle with the notion of insanity.

Are they indeed menatlly divergent? Or is the world around them the true insantity?

Those are some insightful points

Until now I had just come at it from the perspective that he just really likes his drugs

That last post was directed a terrawrist.

Deep you're so right though, you can tell a Gilliam film right from the very first scene.

If you notice the scene near the end of Brazil when Sam is driving in the country and then is drawn back to his lobotomized reality it seems eerily similar to the scene in 12 Monkey's when the panel of scientists are humming 'blue berry hill' while Cole stares at the picture of the florida keys.

They say that a directors are constantly remaking the same movie over and over again. In the case of Gilliam he's most certainly driving at the irrationality of the rationality that characterizes a hyper-beauracracized society. At least that's what I take from his movies.

Shit, I gotta go to bed I got two exams tomorrow.

doh, good luck on your exams, but this would definately be a good conversation to continue

This is not at all a film buff-esque type of comment to make but didn't the fight with the samurai that the protagonist have feel a lot like the one depicted in the bruce lee movie when lee fights his demons?

please do...brad pitt plays a pretty funny and unique role in it, somewhat like tyler durden but with less charm and more insanity

I really dig his shit though...he does pick his roles designed to fit his personality i think.

reminds me of tom cruise,in particular because of the range of his roles and the success of his films...usually really good!

I'll check it out ...on DVD??

just saw it at the store actually when I picked up brazil and sexy beast tonight

I think that people sometimes forget about his skill and range as an actor because of his magazine cover qualities

ben kingsley is another actor who does'nt have "god" stataus in hollywood circles

he's the type of understated actor where you always go "...yeah,...he's a good actor"

sexy beast is the best brit-gangsta movie since "small time"
