Terry Gilliam Top Clips

Carsten Knox picks his favourite five scenes from Terry Gilliam movies.

Three questions from Monty Python and The Holy Grail, with Terry Gilliam as The Bridge Keeper.

From Brazil, The Ministry of Information, a wonderfully comic yet accurate vision of bureaucracy in inaction.

From The Adventures of Baron Munchausen, with two Canadian actors on board, John Neville in the title role and a very young Sarah Polley.

The Grand Central Station dance scene from The Fisher King, with Robin Williams following Amanda Plummer through the crowd.

The trailer from Lost In La Mancha, the documentary by Keith Fulton and Louis Pepe on Gilliam's failed effort to make a film adaptation of Don Quixote.
