Nah, he loves the whole 'everything's against me, the man's putting me down and even the elements conspire against me' thing. He'll be loving this.

He strikes me as the kind of person who would suffer immense lows.  If not bipolar then something else.  I think he'd be crushed by this, assuming it's not all a publicity stunt to bring spice to an otherwise uneventful final phase of the Don Quixote saga.

This is finally coming out in the US in March 2019 - https://www.indiewire.com/2018/12/terry-gilliam-the-man-who-killed-don-quixote-us-release-1202028545/ - so hopefully a UK release will follow.

I'm also predicting that Gilliam will die on February 28th.

Either that or more "stuff" will come out about him and he'll be arrested/ruined.

A blu-ray rip of this has now leaked, presumably because the universe wants the film to flop badly upon release.

Pretty sure that it was always destined to flop, regardless.  It's a long gestating curio for cinephiles.  It was never going to attract anything approaching a mainstream audience and will quite frankly, be lucky to make back its production budget upon theatrical release, much less turn a profit.  I'm just glad that it exists, as I'm sure Terry Gilliam is.

True, but it does seem to add insult to injury that people can now see it for free before it's even released in cinemas in the UK and US.

I'm currently 30 minutes in and enjoying it to a certain extent, and hopefully it'll improve from this point in now that everything's been set up.

Is there a link for this that could be sent to me, please?  Google isn't helping me.

Don't worry, it won't stop me spending money on it later.

I'm sorry but I'm appalled by movie piracy and have reported your post requesting a copy to the police. (But check your pms and someone else might have helped you out).

Terry Gilliam's Mulholland Drive.

Rather than going for the three act structure, he tends to stake out a definite start and a definite end, and then everything in between can wobble all over the place for as long as it likes.  As much as I love some of his films, they do tend to drag on first viewing because unless you're looking at the running time you've no idea where you are in them.

This dragged like fuck, but I'm pretty sure it won't on a second viewing, now I know the layout.  The story - or at least the telling - seems to have changed quite a bit from the abandoned version, or at least how it was described.  The swirly uncertainty of it all works a lot better than the time travel idea.  It's pretty much Brazil with a few of the settings tweaked and some turned up to the max, which isn't a bad thing.
