American-born British screenwriter, film director, animator, actor and member of the Monty Python comedy troupe.
The underground press was convinced that I was a junkie, an acid head. <> But I don't do drugs. I don't like being fucked up. I've got enough bizarre chemicals floating around in my head. I'm just naturally like this.More Terry Gilliam quotes [11/07/2016 02:11:00]

Well, I really want to encourage a kind of fantasy, a kind of magic. I love the term magic realism, whoever invented it – I do actually like it because it says certain things. It's about expanding how you see the world. I think we live in an age where we're just hammered, hammered to think this is what the world is. Television's saying, everything's saying 'That's the world.' And it's not the world. The world is a million possible things.More Terry Gilliam quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
All films are learning processes. I am still trying to work out how you make a movie. I didn't study at film school or any of those things. I didn't bother with film theory.More Terry Gilliam quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
They all sort of get mixed up in my head, to be quite honest. They're all dealing with similar things. It's about how you deal with reality, by ignoring it sometimes, reinventing it other times, and that's how you get through it.More Terry Gilliam quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
