Decades in the making, Terry Gilliam’s near-mythical riff on Cervantes’ fantastic tale finally makes its debut, with Adam Driver as a cynical adman trapped in the delusions of an old shoemaker who believes himself to be Don Quixote.

For years, it was thought to be impossible. Legendary filmmaker and one-time Monty Python member Terry Gilliam (12 Monkeys; Brazil) had tried and failed to film his version of the classic tale several times over multiple decades, most famously with Johnny Depp in the lead, in a production that some saw as forever cursed.

Miraculously, Gilliam’s THE MAN WHO KILLED DON QUIXOTE has arrived. Adam Driver (Paterson; Blakkkkansman) stars as an idealistic filmmaker turned cynical advertising hack who finds himself trapped inside the delusional world of an old shoemaker – played by Gilliam stalwart Jonathan Pryce – who’s convinced that he’s Don Quixote. Their comedic adventures are vintage Gilliam, the eternal struggle between dreams and reality, idealism and cynicism, playing as a fitting analogy for the film’s very existence.

"After a three-decade production ordeal Gilliam has delivered a sun-baked fable of money, madness and the movie business – and done so with trademark infectious charm." – The Guardian

It is an intensely personal piece of filmmaking, a movie shot through with sneaky, unruly pleasures and no small poignancy.
Los Angeles Times
A film suffused with a love of art, and of those who would dare to make it.
