What Is Your Favorite Terry Gilliam Movie?

First off, I would like to apologize for my brief absence.  I’ve been away for a while but should be back on schedule this week and hope to catch up on following up with comments.

So let’s start with this week’s question.  Terry Gilliam has a new movie coming out soon with Christoph Waltz so I thought it’d be appropriate to ask what’s your favorite Gilliam movie?  Monty Python and the Holy Grail would be mine, but if you exclude his Monty Python stuff, I’d say 12 Monkeys, which is one of my favorite action movies.  But what’s your pick?



  1. For Me, By Faaaaaar, It Would Have To Be…

    • Nice pick. I have yet to see that one, but I have that in my Netflix queue.

  2. Either 12 Monkeys or Fear & Loathing 🙂

    • Nice picks! Love 12 Monkeys.

  3. I’ll have to go with 12 Monkeys.

    • Nice pick! 12 Monkeys is a great movie, I watched it again the other night and liked it even more.

  4. For the amazing directorial and also such a beautiful camerawork, gotta agree with jivin, the amazing adventures of baron. Although brazil is a hard one to top…

    • Nice picks! I really enjoy Brazil, especially with its amazing production values.

      • Such a great dark set choreography, just amazing. Haven’t seen it for 8 years now so might have to revisit it again…

  5. Time Bandits.

    • Nice pick!

  6. Baron Münchhausen for me, I’m a big fan of his pseudo-trilogy of Time Bandits, Brazil, and Münchhausen and the Baron is my favorite. I love the cast and the framing device which works its way into the story. I think a lot of recent movies use the framing device in a lazy way but it works well here.

    As a side note, I love the fact that Münchhausen is in my phone’s autocorrect complete with umlaut.

    • Nice picks!

  7. Good to have you back! Would have to be Brazil for me.

    • Nice pick! Brazil’s a great film, really love Gilliam’s satirical pacing.

  8. Difficult question, man. I’m leaning towards 12 Monkeys myself but I do have a massive soft spot for The Fisher King.

    • Nice picks! I really loved 12 Monkeys. I saw it again the other night and it impressed me even more. I really like Brad Pitt’s performance.

      • Pitt is absolutely outstanding in 12 Monkeys. I’d say its probably his best performance.

  9. From what I’ve seen, easily Brazil, though I still need to see Time Bandits and a couple other gaps from his filmography.

    • Nice pick! Brazil’s a great film.

  10. “Tme Bandits” followed by “The Adventures of Baron Munchaussen”

    • Nice picks!

  11. I believe I have only seen two of Gilliam’s films, but Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas is a favorite of mine.

    • Nice pick! I really like that film. I think it has one of Depp’s best roles.
