I have always been intrigued by Terry Gilliam’s work, even though not all his movies have convinced me though and since this movie was Terry Gilliam's first official directing credit, I was really eager to check it out. Indeed, up to that point, Gilliam was working as a member of the Monty Python, it was his first stand-alone feature and that was pretty obvious. I mean, you can see that even tho... read more

“I have always been intrigued by Terry Gilliam’s work, even though not all his movies have convinced me though and since this movie was Terry Gilliam's first official directing credit, I was really eager to check it out. Indeed, up to that point, Gilliam was working as a member of the Monty Python, it was his first stand-alone feature and that was pretty obvious. I mean, you can see that even though he was already a visionary, especially concerning the visual style and his trademark dark humor, Gilliam was still searching himself and, on top of that, as usual, he didn't have really a big budget at his disposal and many of the scenes were shot in a single take, as there was not enough time or money to afford multiple tries.  Still, even though it didn’t really blow me away, it remains a” read more

Almost a Complete review of Terry Gilliam's work (17 movies items)

" Cast : Michael Palin What was it about? A young peasant, with no interest in adventure or fortune, is mistaken as the kingdom's only hope when a horrible monster threatens the countryside. My two cents: It is Terry Gilliam's first official directing credit. It is a decent watch but nothing really amazing, above all compared to what he has done later on.

"Directed by Terry Gilliam. It stars Michael Palin as a young cooper who is forced through clumsy, often slapstick misfortunes to hunt a terrible dragon after the death of his father."
