The Designs of Time Bandits

Inside Criterion / Sneak Peeks — Dec 12, 2014

Terry Gilliam’s Time Bandits is as visually distinctive as it is hilarious and irreverent. This is thanks in great part to the brilliant work of costume designer James Acheson and production designer Milly Burns, who got to create realms both recognizably historical and completely fantastical for this time-travel story. In this excerpt from a new documentary on our release of the film, narrated by writer David Morgan, Acheson and Burns talk about designing for Time Bandits and show off some of their original sketches.
