Since 1969, when he became the only American among the otherwise all-British Monty Python team, Gilliam's work has won acclaim for its originality and imagination. For the first time, this book traces thirty years of his work and art, from his pre-Python days through the adaptation of Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, released in 1998. Using Gilliam's own drawings, storyboard and scripts, this book builds an overview of the director's work, examining in detail his striking visual sense and labyrinthine stories of man against bureaucracy (Brazil, Twelve Monkeys), triumphant tales of imagination winning over mediocrity (Time Bandits, The Adventures of Baron Munchausen, The Fisher King) and, of course, something completely different (Monty Python and the Holy Grail).--From publisher description.
