I'm trying to escape by forming my own kind of world. Basically, I'm trying to encourage others to do the same.More Terry Gilliam quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
They pay money to watch the same film. Now, you could argue, that's because it makes them feel comfortable. When they go to a movie now, it's almost like hearing a pop song. You know the rhythms, you know when the downbeat is going to come, you know when the explosion is going to comeā€¦ And so as life becomes more complex, as the economy is in trouble, people cling to what makes them comfortable, so they go again and again to see the same movie.More Terry Gilliam quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I never define depression, clinical or otherwise. It's the basis of most life, it seems to me, in the modern world. We're all depressed.More Terry Gilliam quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I think there's a side of me that's trying to compete with Lucas and Spielberg - I don't usually admit this publicly - because I tend to think that they only go so far, and their view of the world is rather simplistic. What I want to do is take whatever cinema is considered normal or successful at a particular time and play around with it - to use it as a way of luring audiences in.More Terry Gilliam quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
At the first screening, there were a lot of areas that we went around and around about. Then we had our second screening. It played better. It's almost a reasonable length film now!More Terry Gilliam quotes [08/19/2011 03:08:42]
