    Terry Gilliam

    From his no-frills childhood in the icy wastes of Minnesota to some of the hottest water Hollywood had to offer, via the cutting edge of '60s and '70s counter-culture in New York, LA and London, Terry Gilliam's life has been as vivid and unorthodox as one of his films. Telling his story for the first time, the director of Time Bandits, Brazil, The Adventures of Baron Munchausen, The Fisher King, 12 Monkeys and Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas - not to mention co-founder of Monty Python's Flying Circus - recalls his life so far. Packed with never-before-seen artwork, photographs and commentary, Gilliamesque blends the visual and the verbal with scabrous wit and fascinating insights. Gilliam's 'pre-posthumous memoir' also features a cast of amazing supporting characters - George Harrison, Robin Williams, Jeff Bridges, Robert De Niro, Brad Pitt, Uma Thurman, Johnny Depp, Heath Ledger and all of the fellow Pythons - as well as cameo appearances from some of the heaviest cultural hitters of modern times, from Woody Allen to Frank Zappa, Gloria Steinem to Robert Crumb, Richard Nixon to Hunter S. Thompson. Gilliam's encounters with the great and the not-so-good are revealing, funny and hugely entertaining. This book is an unrestrained look into a unique creative mind and an incomparable portrait of late twentieth-century popular culture.

    Pour la première fois, le réalisateur de Bandits, bandits, Brazil, Les Aventures du baron de Münchhausen, The Fisher King, L'Armée des douze singes et Las Vegas Parano - et bien sûr cofondateur des Monty Python - revient sur son passé.

    De son enfance modeste dans les plaines glacées du Minnesota jusqu'aux sommets d'Hollywood, en passant par le cur de la contre-culture des années 1960 et 1970 à New York, Los Angeles et Londres, Terry Gilliam a vécu une vie aussi trépidante, rocambolesque et anticonformiste que n'importe lequel de ses films.

    Les « mémoires pré-posthumes » de Gilliam affichent aussi un incroyable casting de seconds rôles - George Harrison, Robin Williams, Jeff Bridges, Robert De Niro, Brad Pitt, Uma Thurman, Johnny Depp, Heath Ledger et tous ses anciens camarades des Monty Python -, ainsi que la participation exceptionnelle de quelques-unes des plus grandes figures culturelles des temps modernes, de Woody Allen à Frank Zappa en passant par Gloria Steinem, Robert Crumb, Richard Nixon et Hunter S. Thompson. Les rencontres de Gilliam, que ce soit avec des gens tout en haut ou parfois tout en bas de l'échelle, sont révélatrices, drôles et férocement jubilatoires.
