Director: Terry Gilliam
Terry Gilliam (obviously pronounced /ˈɡɪliəm/) is an actor, writer, and director. Having started his career as an animator and cartoonist, he was one of the founding members of Monty Python. He began directing during the group’s gradual break-up, and continued a transition into a successful directing career during the eighties.
Gilliam’s films deal with surrealism and the absurd, often using cinematic hyperbole and pushing ideas to their ultimate extremes. The environments blend modern and antique, with the characters living in in a bizarre grounded fantasy. For films that often fall into the fantasy genre, Gilliam’s movies have a notable distinction for clearly commenting on real society. They manage to provide a cinematic escape while almost tricking the audience into self reflection.
