    To be fair, he’s barely made anything since 12 Monkeys…and most of that time was spent trying to make the Don Quixote movie, which looked amazing from what I saw on “Lost in La Mancha.”

    So I still have faith that he’ll do something worthwhile in the near future.

    And, while not worthy of the man’s talents and with all due respect for your opinion, Brothers Grimm was at least watchable (though not re-watchable). And all that despite fabled battles between Gilliam and the Weinsteins over the making of the film, including the firing of Gilliam’s DP, which are often cited as at least one cause of its mediocrity.

    Gilliam hasn’t made anything worth watching since 12 Monkeys. Never has a director fallen so quickly in my opinion. Honestly Brazil is one my all-time favorite movies. Yet I can’t think of a movie that I’ve detested more than Brothers Grimm. It looks like Tideland is only continuing down the same awful path.

    I really need to rent Tideland one of these days. Gilliam deserves that much.
