In the end, I'm left with an immeasurable appreciation for how bloody hard 1st A.D.'s work on set, and the crap they've got to deal with.

It's worth watching to catch glimpses of the Gilliam works, and to be strangely reassured that disasters and misfortune happen even to the best artists.
| Original Score: B+

entertaining without always being compelling

A fascinating documentary for film fans. Those who are not real film fans or film students probably won't find it as interesting.

This is a lively film, as optimistic in tone as Don Quixote is in character. And Terry Gilliam is a bright, expansive and enthusiastic filmmaker, a likeable, charismatic guy who jokes about having a budget of US$31.5 million being "half the money we need"

The only person who has jousted at more windmills than Don Quixote seems to be Terry Gilliam.

Wondrous document of a film gone wrong and an artist who inspires fans, cast and crew, even as he terrifies financiers, insurers and anyone more firmly footed in filmmaking reality.
| Original Score: 5/5

If something about you causes you to root for Terry Gilliam too, you should definitely seek this film out

Lost In La Mancha will have you alternately wincing, laughing and, finally, weeping at the thought that we may never see this potentially brilliant movie.

Filled with humor and human drama, this La Mancha is an intriguing place for film lovers to get lost.

A fascinating record of how the movie fell apart, piece by piece, with everything short of a natural disaster conspiring against the filmmaker.

A fascinating study in the cinematic arts, as we watch a talented director and a committed crew and cast thwarted by nature, human failings and just plain bad luck.
| Original Score: 4/5

One of the most depressing film's I've ever seen.

The real focus of the film is Gilliam himself -- and his growing disillusionment with the project as it stubbornly refuses to become the movie he's already shot in his head.

Terry Gilliam whistles, and laughs, past the graveyard in this painful look at a movie-gone-wrong.
