Terry Gilliam’s “Pre-posthumous” Memoir

On Film / Short Takes — Sep 9, 2015
Gilliamesque

Here’s an enjoyable reminder of what Terry Gilliam does best: a new trailer for Gilliamesque: A Pre-posthumous Memoir. Animated in that old Monty Python style and set to the disturbingly catchy score from Brazil, it’s a nice, quick preview of the kinds of material—like hand-drawn sketches, notes, and memorabilia from the filmmaker’s personal archive—that the book will offer when it’s out next month from Harper Collins.
