I’m sure you’ve seen the Onion headline: “Terry Gilliam Barbecue Plagued by Production Delays.” Yes, but in some ways the legend is much more interesting than the reality. I would say that 90 percent of the people who have worked with me know I’m quite a rational human being, concerned about budgets and all those tedious and boring things. They don’t make very good legends is all I can say.
Much better is Cox’s first question, about Variety recently and accidentally pulling the trigger on a stored, ready-to-go Gilliam obituary. Read his thoughts on that here.
