Terry Gilliam Sandwich

This Sunday, 23rd July, viewers of BBC4 can see a new, hour long interview with Terry Gilliam, followed by Brazil, 'officially' the greatest film ever made, and then the hour long interview again.

Set your VCRs, DVRs and alarm clocks now.

Lost in Translation is kicking off Film4's free-to-air service at exactly the same time just a couple of button presses away. I know what side I'm on.

You're gonna watch the entire sandwich aren't you?

Whuh? Me....?

It has been far too long since I've seen Brazil.

Rich Johnston said...

And then you'll watch the interview again.

Doo doo dooo... do do do doo doo....

And for some reason, Mark Lawson decided to ask nothing about Tideland at all.

What pissed me off: this could have gone from being a decent interview to a fine documentary if the Beeb had stumped up for more rights - y'know, instead of talking about his college artwork, the cartoons and posters they mentioned, shown in in a nice lingering rostrum shot; and similarly his work with Hrvey Kurtzman, especially the fumetti that led to his friendship with Cleese.

Missed opportunities.
