Behind the Scenes: The Films of Terry Gilliam

“I never thought necessarily that I do fantasy (films) because I always thought I’m actually dealing with reality, it just happens to be through the eyes of a cartoonist. I’m a cartoonist; that’s what I am at heart. In cartoons, you take reality and deform it, you make it grotesque, you make it funny. You alter it, but it works because it’s based upon reality. That’s what I try to do.” – Terry Gilliam

With the latest from Terry Gilliam – The Zero Theorem – out this week on home video, Deep Fried Movies takes a look back at Gilliam’s iconoclastic, fantastical work via production stills taken on the director’s sets.
