The Man Who Killed Don Quixote

Critics Consensus

The Man Who Killed Don Quixote may not live up to long-gestating expectations, but it bears enough of director Terry Gilliam's signature creative stamp to satisfy fans.

Movie Info

Toby (Adam Driver), a cynical advertising director, finds himself trapped in the outrageous delusions of an old Spanish shoe-maker (Jonathan Pryce) who believes himself to be Don Quixote. In the course of their comic and increasingly surreal adventures, Toby is forced to confront the tragic repercussions of a film he made in his idealistic youth -- a film that changed the hopes and dreams of a small Spanish village forever. Can Toby make amends and regain his humanity? Can Don Quixote survive his madness and imminent death? Or will love conquer all?

Audience Reviews for The Man Who Killed Don Quixote

  • Jun 06, 2019
    Given the whole sorted history, its remarkable this thing got made. Unfortunately the final product is a huge mess. This might have been solved by trimming the film but I suspect the length is there to hide the fact that the movie has very little to say. That being said Adam Driver gives a performance that is just so damn good. I wish it was in a better movie.
