terry and chris

i have been a fan of terry gilliam since i was kid, watching monty python with my dad and being completely intrigued by the surreal animations and gags.  the man has to be brilliant, to be a funny-looking art student from minnesota and get completely encapsulated and accepted by the python crew as not only their youngest but only american member.  we all know gilliam’s ode to la jetee is twelve monkeys, the 90’s film exploring time travel and the dreams/visualizations of a prisoner.  the film is quite predictable, but it’s worth a watch if for nothing else but madeleine stowe’s lovely face and brad pitt’s neuroses.  anyway, here is terry praising the paragon director, chris marker.  notwithstanding all the love in this post, my favorite part has to be his tintin sweater! by sv
