In documenting the unfortunate comedy of errors leading up to the film's failure, Fulton and Pepe both reveal the difficulties of making a film outside the Hollywood studio system and Gilliam's quixotic approach to his material.
It's the ultimate evolutionary form of the movie-madness documentary genre.
A masterfully constructed, fly-on-the-wall revelation, which not only shows what went wrong with The Man Who Killed Don Quixote, but also proves how painfully dedicated a director Terry Gilliam is.
...remains a frank and fascinating spectacle, as one man's 10-year cinematic odyssey painfully disintegrates.
The film should be required viewing for all aspiring filmmakers...
