Terry Gilliam in Toronto
So what if The Brother’s Grimm sucked? Terry Gilliam’s a mad bastard and I love him. He’s been tilting at windmills for years, conjuring up mind-bending send-ups of our bureaucracy-mad modern world. This week, Cinematheque Ontario is launching a tribute to the former Monty Python cartoonist, beginning with the director’s cut of Brazil on October 7. The great cinematic Quixote will introduce the film that night and then return to deliver a lecture following a screening of his new film Tideland at the Isabel Bader on the 9th.
Gilliam will also be putting in an appearance late Saturday afternoon, October 7, at the Toronto Public Library branch at 239 College St (home of the Merril Science Fiction, Speculation & Fantasy Collection). Presented by The Beguiling, Toronto’s premier comic book and graphic novel emporium, the event will begin at 5 p.m. Tickets to this exclusive event are available only through The Beguiling—you must sign up to their electronic mailing list to find out how. You can join the list by heading to the main page of their Web site.“
