Terry Gilliam’s trial to recreate the tale of Don Quixote into a movie parallels the story of Don Quixote. Gilliam’s imagination seems to be unstoppable but during filming of Don Quixote, his imagination was the only thing that seemed to be concrete. Most of the obstacles that deterred the movie from getting off the ground was the environment and his production team. Almost as if they viewed Gilliam as boundless and reckless, unable to realize he is outmatched by his own ideas. In the documentary he states why he has decided to take on Don Quixote’s story, he says that he is at a point in his life where he relates to the idea of Quixote and his conquest against the odds of age or ability. One person was explaining the end of Quixote’s tale, Quixote gives into the reality of his own being. By the end of the documentary, Gilliam admits to the fact that ” The Windmills of Reality Fight Back.” It was sad to see him admit defeat but I do not believe he has stopped creating his tale of Don Quixote.
