With two new films in the works, one of which, The Brothers Grimm, has already been visited by controversy, Terry Gilliam took some time to give this illuminating and far-ranging interview.
It interests me to see that he's had issues with Harvey Weinstein's interference in his art. He's not the first person to complain about his influence. One has to wonder to what extent obtaining financing from Weinstein is making a pact with the forces of darkness. He's willing to bankroll some of the greatest directors working (Scorsese, for instance), but treats them as if they were working in the old Hollywood studio system. Is this really the best that we can do by our filmmakers in 2005? Perhaps it is.
