Now is probably as good a time as any to make a full confession...Telling his story for the first time, the director of Time Bandits, Brazil, The Adventures of Baron Munchausen, The Fisher King, 12 Monkeys and Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas - not to mention co-founder of Monty Python's Flying Circus - recalls his extraordinary life so far. Featuring a cast of amazing supporting characters, including George Harrison, Robin Williams, Jeff Bridges, Robert De Niro, Brad Pitt, Uma Thurman, Johnny Depp, Heath Ledger and all of the fellow Pythons, Gilliamesque is a rollercoaster ride through late twentieth century popular culture. Packed with never-before-seen artwork, photographs and commentary.


"A high-speed car chase" through the life of the cult film-maker and Python ... colourful in every sense * SUNDAY TIMES * Beautiful ... Gilliam is a true original and it is reassuring to discover that he knows exactly why he is: messy yet realistic and, like the Spanish Inquisition of his Python days, always unexpected * TELEGRAPH * Filled with honest wisdom, innocence and wonder, from the roots of creativity to the temporal perspective of age ... Gilliam has never made a dull film and is incapable of writing a dull sentence * INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY * Packed with never-before-seen artwork and photographs, an illustrated and typically unorthodox memoir * MAIL ON SUNDAY * Stunning * OBSERVER *
