Gilliam Watch Read Listen

March is Creator’s Month at Watch.Read.Listen., and our first creator is director, animator, and Python Terry Gilliam. Gilliam’s films have been a huge influence on us since we were kids, and we explore how his exploration of the fantastical has affected us. Note: This episode contains spoilers for Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Jabberwocky, Time Bandits, Brazil, The Adventures of Baron Munchausen, The Fisher King, 12 Monkeys, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, The Brothers Grimm, and Tideland, with minor discussion of The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus and Zero Theorem.

This Week:

Duane: Live theatre, Bad Lip Reading (YouTube), The Liturgists Podcast, Scriptnotes Podcast

David: Marriage (to Shoe), The Art of Neil Gaiman: the Story of a Writer by Haley Campbell, Dark Knights and Holy Fools by Bob McCabe, The Projection Booth‘s episode on Pump Up the Volume (which Duane realizes he’s actually seen and liked, despite not remembering during the conversation)
