Lost In La Macha

Lost in La Mancha is superb. If you are, at all, interested in the process of making a film then you should go and see the unravelling of Terry Gilliam‘s The Man Who Killed Don Quixote.

From the start, the production is plagued by floods. Gilliam, being independent of spirt and – therefore – independent of Hollywood studio money battles on with Johnny Depp and Jean Rochefort in starring roles. Rochefort’s illness, however, brings a grinding halt to the proceedings.

Narrated by Jeff Bridges, Lost in La Mancha, had access to the whole production and, as such, we get a fascinating tale of movie making.
