"Acknowledged visionary, former Monty Python member, animator deluxe and cracked mirror of the modern condition, Gilliam also is, depending on who's talking, either the enfant terrible or the guiless manchild of the movies. His films are visually intoxicating, wildly ambitious, personal and at times perplexing. . . . " --From "Reality Check" by John Anderson, Newsday, April 23, 1995

"I actually go out of my way to make films that are hard to define." --Gilliam quoted in Entertainment Weekly, August 25/September 1, 1995

"I like coming back here [the USA] in short stints. L.A.'s too wrapped up in being Hollywood; all anyone talks about is films and everybody thinks the same thoughts. I don't think I could maintain a unique view without being susceptible to what everybody else thinks." --Gilliam quoted in Time Out January 3-10, 1996
