I'm sure we'd done this before but search threw up nothing...

Anyway, I've recently watched Jabberwocky and Tideland - both really really good and of course Brazil is one of the bestest films ever. Watching "And Now For Something Completely Different", it struck me that the best bits were the TG animation sections.

Brazil is the only one that's more than halfway good. He never learned to focus (I don't mean the image).

is tideland good? you're the only person I've heard say that.

brazil, time bandits, baron munchausen, fear and loathing: so classic. but when he's bad he's terrible (haven't been able to get through brothers grimm, jabberwocky was dumb).

Please tell me what you liked about Tideland. I didn't like it one bit.

accentmonkey, Thursday, 3 May 2007 14:18 (eleven years ago) Permalink

I guess I just like most things he's done. Tideland could have been a little more mentalist for my liking and Jabberwocky could have been a bit more directional but on the whole I like his style.

haha MORE mentalist?

nickalicious, Thursday, 3 May 2007 14:56 (eleven years ago) Permalink

Well, I guess I can see that. I just found it painful to watch. Incredibly painful to watch. Every frame of it.

nickalicious, Thursday, 3 May 2007 14:57 (eleven years ago) Permalink

YEah. It could have been even more unhinged, but really it never quite delved into the surrealness it wanted to go into. That said, I still thought it was pretty good, at least for the first half.

why nick? just out of interest?

the next grozart, Thursday, 3 May 2007 14:58 (eleven years ago) Permalink

And he is probably my favorite film-maker. I love Jabberwocky though, it has a great low-fi Python-esque charm.

Have you seen Lost in La Mancha, the documentary about his failed attempt to make a Man of La Mancha film? It is pretty incredible.

xpost I think the biggest problem with Tideland is that we were supposed to like or sympathize with Jeliza Rose, and I just don't think the actress pulled it off. Also her relationship with the neighbor guy was just completely nerve-racking, which I guess was the point, but if that's your point, why?

I did find the taxidermied dad stuff about as hilarious as horrendous though.

nickalicious, Thursday, 3 May 2007 15:02 (eleven years ago) Permalink

I mean, it seemed like he set out to make the audience as uncomfortable as possible with that film (obv considering a child helps their parent shoot up/overdose in the first 5 minutes), which I suppose he succeeded at, but I just don't understand why he would make such a film.

nickalicious, Thursday, 3 May 2007 15:03 (eleven years ago) Permalink

Lost in La Mancha is great, the image of Johnny Depp wrestling with a giant fish will always stay with me.

I also love Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas, although it is pretty flawed. For me, "great but flawed" sums up most of his films. Even The Brothers Grimm had some redeeming features.

Yeah, bits of it were a little uncomfortable, which TG kind of prepares you for in his slightly pretentious but optional foreword on the DVD. Why make such a film? I dunno man, why make any films? The heroin thing I thought was kind of valid - it shows that Jeliza Rose is living a less than mainstream lifestyle, it shows her disattachment from her parents and it links the Alice In Wonderland pretext to it

I had no idea FALILV was Terry Gilliam.

wurrr... boss just came in.

I don't know about the relationship between Jeliza Rose and the handicapped neighbour. But I guess it's something that could essentially happen, like kids playing doctors and nurses. Underneath it all and through an adult's eyes it's all "WOAH! This is disGUSTING bloody filthy peado shit", but really it's Jeliza making all the moves and it's not as if there's any serious stuff going on between them. It starts to show Jeliza's mischievious side as well, tarting up and generally acting the madam.

and no matter what, you can't say that child actress isn't some kind of genius. she was good in silent hill too.

the next grozart, Thursday, 3 May 2007 15:15 (eleven years ago) Permalink

She was great. But I just found the film incredibly boring, which was kind of a shame because I liked all the weirdness in it. I suspect that the girl's monologues are probably better in the book.

accentmonkey, Thursday, 3 May 2007 16:32 (eleven years ago) Permalink

I still think The Fisher King is one of his most underrated movies. Robin Williams is halfway tolerable! Mercedes Ruhel besting all the other actors! Jeff Bridges as Jeff Lebowski's depressed older brother! Tom Waits in a wheelchair! EvErYThIng IS CoMiNG UP VIDEOOOO-OHS!

Even Gilliam's stereotypes, like the guy on the horse, fits right in. And I would nominate a pivotal scene late in the movie as one of the most non-gratitutious and necessary scenes of graphic violence in cinema.

Pleasant Plains, Thursday, 3 May 2007 16:48 (eleven years ago) Permalink

Robin Williams gets naked and howls at the moon. This is not tolerable.

Pleasant Plains, Thursday, 3 May 2007 17:24 (eleven years ago) Permalink

Fisher King is awful. Its two films in one - the love story interlude completely derails the film for like an hour and then for no reason it circles back to "oh yeah, let's find the Grail!" also Morbz OTM re: Robin Williams getting naked, ruining Jimmy Durante songs, etc. 12 Monkeys is hampered by the predictability of the plot and Bruce Willis (who I can never tolerate), but it has its moments - mostly the ones set in the future or featuring Brad Pitt as schizo-on-speed. Probably the only flim I really like Pitt in besides Thelma and Louise.

HOWEVER I love love love Gilliam's other major films: the troika of Time Bandits, Brazil, and Baron Munchausen is a major achievement. All three films share themes but present them through different viewpoints via the central characters - first as a child in Time Bandits, then as middle-aged man in Brazil, and then as the old man reflecting on his life in Baron Munchausen. (Time Bandits is literally shot almost entirely from the POV of the child, for instance - the narrative in Munchausen loops and shifts in accordance with the Baron's state of mind, etc.)

After those three, he's got some decent ideas ina few of the other films but yeah, unfocused for sure.

Gilliam is one of those people whose work I love more or less uncritically. Even when he's failing, I love how he's trying. Even Brothers Grimm is entertaining as an almost-but-not-quite-strictly-for-the-money effort. I like the way Napoleon and the Enlightenment still bug him.

Brazil, Munchhausen and Time Bandits are his best movies. 12 Monkeys is great. Fisher King and Fear and Loathing are flawed, but they're solid, entertaining movies. Brother's Grimm = pppppptht.

I really want to see Tideland. Is the girl's performance that bad? Very nervous after Grimm.

Fluffy Bear Hearts Rainbows, Thursday, 3 May 2007 18:16 (eleven years ago) Permalink

I can't quite put my finger on why Fear and Loathing doesn't work - the casting and the look and feel of the film are great, but its like there's no "story" really. No conflict to hang a dramatic arc on, just a lot of ranting.

David Warner, best evil supreme being wotsit ever.
And his sidekick (Ringo from Never the Twain) - "Thank you marster, THANNNK YOUUUUU!"

Funny, I watched Tideland just the other day. I feared it, kinda, but was surprised that I liked it. I liked it more on second viewing, and even more on third viewing with Gilliam commentary.
I loved the little girl in it, she was fab.

DavidM, Thursday, 3 May 2007 18:17 (eleven years ago) Permalink

Have they done a deluxe DVD remaster kind of thing for Time Bandits yet? There is this huge rift in the film/sound quality between Time Bandits and Baron Munchausen, at least in the versions I've seen most recently (both cable tv).

Shakey Mo Collier, Thursday, 3 May 2007 18:26 (eleven years ago) Permalink

I think the weakness in Fear and Loathing is the source material. It's not really a story to begin with. It's an autobiographical expose on the American dream.

Fluffy Bear Hearts Rainbows, Thursday, 3 May 2007 18:30 (eleven years ago) Permalink

maybe ...on the Campaign Trail woulda been a better source? (Also would've required an appearance of my favorite president-as-comedy-source-material, Nixon) How would people rate it next to "Where the Buffalo Roam"?

Shakey Mo Collier, Thursday, 3 May 2007 18:32 (eleven years ago) Permalink

I'll agree that most of his films are big clusterfucks, yet I've liked most that I've seen - even the Fisher King (Williams & love story derailment were problematic), 12 Monkeys, and Fear & Loathing. I loved Brazil. I haven't seen Time Bandits and I'm thinking this needs to be remedied asap.

Tideland is fucking creepy. Yes, I get that it's supposed to reflect how dark a young child's life can get, but there's just some stuff I don't want to indulge in fully. This movie is uncomfortable to the max.

Tideland not just suit but ugly and dull

12 monkeys great, his best effort at an actual movie

Parnassus far better than expected

Trouble with Gilliam is that he's sure he's clever and his one message is worth half making a lecturing panto about every three years when he's patently quite stupid and has little to say beyond denigrating competence

God knows Tim Burton is total shit but his best and his career average shits on Gilliam despite sharing almost all the same flaws

Pleasant? Her father goes on a heroin infused journey and checks out of her life and she spends most of her time dissociating from the cruelty of adults through her puppets. I guess that's the beauty of interpretation.

Ross- I don't think I would take it as an attack but thanks anyway.

The main thing that sticks with me about this is Gilliam saying that when she grows up, all this could be seen as the best or worst time of her life. But it's difficult to imagine her father's death not overshadowing the good times.

The problem with Tideland is not one of performance, technical execution or -as imago was typically desperate to enthusiastically doing round- the squares being shocked by the themes or plot.

It's the clumsiness. I said hamfisted above and it's still the right word. When you are clumsy and hamfisted and the topic is deliberately risky then the result will be a greater blowout than if you are as clumsy and hamfisted as Gilliam almost always is but the plot revolves around Johnny Depp mugging at a fish.

Gilliam's defence at the start of Tideland underlines his missing the point. It's not the theme. He's not shocked us with farts and underage sexual innuendo. His sin is that he earns nothing of the cloak of bold genius he thinks he dons by sheer virtue of a controversial attempt. He lets his actors down. Any drunk uncle can grasp at a shocking subject as he's being fucked out of the bar. Gilliam lacks the intellect, discipline and focus to actually shock, regardless of the theme. His level of execution isn't worthy of Sid James. The cunt is bawdy and he thinks he's dangerous. It's pathetic.

Betsy DeVos Ayes (darraghmac), Tuesday, 7 February 2017 23:35 (one year ago) Permalink

I'm not sure it was important that it be shocking. I think he may have even made an effort to take the edge off the nasty stuff.

Director Terry Gilliam has encountered more trouble with his years-long passion project The Man Who Killed Don Quixote, as news broke today that the filmmaker has lost his rights to the film. Despite all of the time that Gilliam has poured into the film’s production, the director lost a court battle that determined who had proper rights to The Man Who Killed Don Quixote.

The Paris Court of Appeal ruled that the film’s former producer Paulo Branco has the rights to the project after reviewing a 2016 contract that confirmed Branco’s enduring ties to the film. It was Branco that originally began the suit, taking Gilliam to court over the film’s rights after claiming the filmmaker made the movie illegally.
