From Quiz
The Film History of Terry Gilliam

Answer: Jabberwocky

Jabberwocky was a raw and unusual film that barely scraped the depths of Gilliam's talents. It featured the acting of fellow Pythons Michael Palin (as Dennis Cooper) and Terry Jones (as the Poacher). Terry Gilliam makes an appearance as 'Man with Rock'. Check it out!

2. Perhaps Terry Gilliam's most acclaimed film was this cinematic gem that told the story of a dystopic future in which corporations rule and terrorism has become an almost expected part of everyday life. After what country is the film named?

From Quiz The Film History of Terry Gilliam

Answer: Brazil

Almost frightening in some of its parallels to the world of today, 'Brazil' is at once mystical and ominously realistic. The cast of 'Brazil' includes Jonathan Pryce in the lead role as Sam Lowry, Robert De Niro, Katherine Helmond, Ian Holm, Bob Hoskins, Michael Palin, Ian Richardson, Peter Vaughn and Kim Griest.

3. 'The Aventures of Baron Munchausen' (or 'Die Abenteuer des Baron von Münchhausen', as it is known in Germany) was Gilliam's 1988 film epic. Which of Gilliam's Python pals played a key role in the film?

Eric Idle appears in this film as the speedster Desmond. Also appearing are John Neville (as the Baron), Sarah Polley, Oliver Reed, Jonathan Pryce, Uma Thurman, Sting and Robin Williams (credited as Ray D. Tutto, a play on the Italian 'Re di Tutto', which means 'King of Everything').

4. Who stars as the lead character James Cole in Gilliam's 1995 sci-fi masterpiece 'Twelve Monkeys'?

From Quiz The Film History of Terry Gilliam

Answer: Bruce Willis

Another eccentric film from Mr. Gilliam, this one had numerous inspirations, most importantly the French sci-fi classic film 'La Jetée' by Chris Marker. Alongside Willis appeared Madeleine Stowe, Christopher Plummer and Brad Pitt in a surprisingly quirky performance as Jeffrey Goines.
