Terry Gilliam

Biography

Terry Gilliam was the mastermind behind Monty Python's strange and hilarious animated shorts, who can forget "The Killer Cars", or the trademark foot...  But he is also the mastermind behind some of the most impressive films to have graced our cinema screens, from "Jabberwocky", and "Time Bandits" and the classic "Brazil", to the futuristic paranoia of "Twelve Monkeys", and drug soaked nightmare of Hunter S. Thompson's "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas".  A little known fact is that Terry Gilliam actually once teamed up with his hero, Mad Magazine Creator Harvey Kurtzman as Assistant Editor of "Help!"; a  humor publication Kurtzman had started after he left Mad, and he also illustrated the book, "Harvey Kurtzman's Fun and Games".
