The Movie: Despite the legendary struggle over Brazil, Gilliam returned to Universal for Monkeys, which saw him take another step up in terms of star power, with Bruce Willis And Brad Pitt nabbing the lead roles.
The time travel paradoxes become a little twisted in on themselves, but Monkeys still successfully blends the intriguing look Gilliam always brings with the sci-fi hook.
Terry’s Trials: Another relatively strife-free shoot, but some different challenges.
"It's a very different experience working with stars,” Gilliam set at the time.
“I'm not used to the American system that allows stars incredible latitude. They're just not used to working the way we used to work in England, where we're just more matter-of-factly getting on with it. Here, people are frightened with the success of successful people. It's much more hierarchical, there's more fear in the air. It's odd."
