Great movie! Anybody who has enjoyed Gilliam’s other movies like Brazil, The Fisher King, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, 12 Monkeys, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas or The Adventures of Baron Munchausen should see this one too!

Absolutely loved it! Reminiscent of Brazil, Baron Munchausen, and Time Bandits. A magical experience. Adam Driver and Jonathan Pryce gave amazing performances.

The creative journey, and the magical bond between artist and subject, are what ignite Gilliam’s passion here. Unfortunately, the themes of The Man Who Killed Don Quixote are more compelling than the set pieces themselves.

Despite how personally the filmmaker connects with this ambitious riff on the Cervantes novel, the long-time passion project succumbs to the same indulgences and weaknesses that have plagued his recent movies.

Large-scale filmmaking of this kind to some degree is probably always an adventurer's folly, with an unhinged visionary tilting at windmills in a valiant quest to tame fantasy and reality into companionable travelers that will live forever. But rarely have such brave deeds yielded so meager a reward.
