I keep referring to them in the plural but all I'm dealing with is Bob. I don't know where Harvey fits in the equation. He was very present at the beginning, winding his brother up. I don't know where he is now.More Terry Gilliam [08/19/2011 03:08:58]

People used to think we just faked all that stuff... it was all written, rehearsed. The fact that it looks as cobbled together as it does is just that we weren't very good.More Terry Gilliam [08/19/2011 03:08:50]
There was a perverse side of me, with things like Van Helsing coming out. I didn't want to go down that route.More Terry Gilliam [08/19/2011 03:08:09]
They make Spy Kids, they make Scream, they make A Scary Movie. This doesn't do that, so it could be a very bad marriage. I'm trying to keep this potential nightmare quiet because we're just finishing editingMore Terry Gilliam [08/19/2011 03:08:13]
We did Holy Grail, and I got my name up there as one of the directors. After that, I started moving more and more down the line I wanted to, which was making movies.More Terry Gilliam [08/19/2011 03:08:20]

A mistake is a Buddhist gift.
Director Terry Gilliam to Robin Williams.More Terry Gilliam [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
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 [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

It's death to cinema, I can't watch those Star Wars films, they're dead things.More Terry Gilliam [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
