Roberto's opinion

Terry Gilliam is an unorthodox & creative genius film director!

He is known for directing Time Bandits, Brazil, The Adventures of Baron Munchausen, The Fisher King, 12 Monkeys, and Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas and others.

He gained fame as the only non-Brit member in Monty Python’s crew.

Here in Gilliamesque, his pre-posthumous memoir, he set out to write his biography. But things didn't go as planned. They never do with Terry. The result is this oversized, hardcover memoir illustrated with hand-drawn sketches, notes, and memorabilia from his personal archive.

Enjoy Terry’s unique creative mindfuck!
