THE IMAGINARIUM OF DOCTOR PARNASSUS

TERRY GILLIAM (Director/Producer/Screenwriter/Original Design) first came to recognition in 1969 as the only American member of the wildly popular television show "Monty Python's Flying Circus”, for which he crafted the animated sequences. In 1975, he co-directed, with Terry Jones, his first feature, "Monty Python and the Holy Grail”, which was soon followed by his solo directorial debut "Jabberwocky” (1977).

His subsequent films include "Time Bandits” (1981), "Monty Python's The Meaning of Life” (co-dir. Terry Jones; 1983), "Brazil” (1985), starring Jonathan Pryce and Robert De Niro, for which he received an Oscar® nomination for Best Original Screenplay, a Los Angeles Film Critics award for Best Film and widespread critical praise, "The Adventures of Baron Munchausen” (1988), a return to historical fantasy and "The Fisher King” (1991), which earned him a Golden Globe® nomination for Best Director and the Silver Lion at the Venice International Film Festival. Returning to the director's chair with the star-studded science fiction epic "Twelve Monkeys” (1995), he then went on to make "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas” (1998), an adaptation of Hunter S. Thompson's 1971 novel. In 2000, Gilliam started production on his lifelong dream, "The Man Who Killed Don Quixote”.

Unfortunately, severe problems led to the production being shut down within the first week of filming – against his wishes. In 2005, Gilliam released "The Brothers Grimm”, starring Matt Damon and Heath Ledger, followed, a year later, by "Tideland” starring Jeff Bridges, Jodelle Ferland and Janet McTeer.
