The Man Who Killed Don Quixote
CAST: Adam Driver, Jonathan Pryce, Stellan Skarsgard DIRECTOR: Terry Gilliam WEIRD ELEPHANT SERIES | ENDS 6/6
Toby (Adam Driver), a cynical advertising director, finds himself trapped in the outrageous delusions of an old Spanish shoe-maker (Jonathan Pryce) who believes himself to be Don Quixote. In the course of their comic and increasingly surreal adventures, Toby is forced to confront the tragic repercussions of a film he made in his idealistic youth -- a film that changed the hopes and dreams of a small Spanish village forever. Can Toby make amends and regain his humanity? Can Don Quixote survive his madness and imminent death? Or will love conquer all?
Witty, goofy, and glorious, The Man Who Killed Don Quixote is Terry Gilliam's best film in two decades.Brian Tallerico, RogerEbert.com
It's exactly the kind of odd, reality-skewing fantasy you'd expect from the inventive Gilliam.Wenlei Ma, News.com.au
Absurdly funny and well-acted (particularly by Driver), with sumptuous costumes and production design. The stunning cinematography deserves to be seen on a big screen.Fiona Underhill, Moviejawn
