Ach ja, das Leben als kreativer Gestalter, kein Zuckerschlecken Terry Gilliam musste dies erstaunlich oft in seinem Schaffen und Sein erfahren, mit Gilliamesque gibt es nun eine bunt illustrierte und wunderbar selektive Autobiografie Auf seine unvergleichliche Art erz hlt der Grafiker, Illustrator, Schauspieler, Regisseur und K nstler von seiner Kindheit, seinem Aufwachsen und den T tigkeiten bis heute Dabei werden nicht wie sonst meist seitenweise Jahreszahlen und Namen aufgelistet, sondern mit einem knackigen Fliesstext die wichtigsten Stationen und berlegungen abgearbeitet.Man erh lt dabei nicht wirklich viele Blicke hinter die Kulissen von Monty Python oder seinen Filmdrehs, viel eher aber eine unverbl mte Perspektive in das Business und die t glichen K mpfe um Geld oder Freiheit Gilliamesque ist somit vor allem ein Blick in das Gehirn des Mannes und immer sehr unterhaltsam Toll auch die vielen Abbildungen und Anmerkungen f r Freunde der andersartigen Filmunterhaltung ergibt dies ein nettes Komplettpaket.

I almost didn t sign up for this Goodreads giveaway, as biography memoir is my least favorite genre Could anything be duller than someone recounting their so so high school years Gilliam s memoir has a few yawns, but it s also packed with pictures and drawings that lend of a scrapbook feel than bland autobiography, or as the man himself puts it something closer to a Grand Theft Auto biography a high speed car chase with lots of skids and crashes, many of the best moments whizzing by in a blur.Despite Gilliam s best efforts, the story of his early years is pretty dull, though I enjoyed having a gander at his brief stint as a model during college Hint he looked nothing like this The book is packed with photos and artwork You ll see plenty of familiar faces, including this guy These characters And who could ever forget Despite being known mainly for his cut and paste animation, Gilliam is quite a talented artist as the featured caricatures and cartoons attest His reminiscences of life with Python are lacking in detail, and indeed, Gilliam himself recommends reading Michael Palin s diaries for a fleshed out account Gilliam concerns himself mostly with telling tales about his own films Time Bandits, Brazil, The Fisher King, 12 Monkeys, including the Johnny Depp Don Quixote vehicle that never got made and the movie that almost didn t get finished due to the death of Heath Ledger The Imaginarium of Dr Parnassus I particularly enjoyed an anecdote involving a vulgar story told by Marlon Brando, who Gilliam was hoping would play Vulcan in The Adventures of Baron Munchausen I m now itching to see all these films all again.Though the written content is somewhat uninspiring, Gilliam has created a visually stunning book It was rather interesting to watch his rise from a monosyllabic Minnesota farm boy to an artist, actor and brilliant director who has since proven a command of many, many syllables Here he is using syllables to discuss some deleted animations from Monty Python and the Holy Grail A really interesting peek into the life of one of my favorite directors It s funny, interesting, and makes me want to make things The only downside is that he mostly just hits the highlights of making some of his movies and there are times when I wish he would have went a little in depth But it s a fun book Go read it
