Erstwhile member of Monty Pythons Flying Circus, and principal artist-animator of the surreally bizarre cartoons with which it was frequently interspersed, Terry Gilliam has gone on to become a film director. Gilliam's Brazil is known among cineastes as a drastic example of things that can go wrong when a director doesn't have final cut and the studio steps in to "take control" of a situation it sees as spiralling out of control; Gilliam's battles with the studio are notorious and well documented.


A project to film Don Quixote recently collapsed with cost overruns.
