[BACK]

My POV
Brian A. Wilson

Find "Lost in La Mancha"



"Lost in La Mancha" belongs on your shelf of "Real Hollywood" movies. You know the shelf-the one containing such entertaining, educational, too-true classics such as The Player, The Big Picture and Swimming With Sharks.

Lost in La Mancha started out, one assumes, as the making-of footage to go on the DVD of Terry Gilliam's "The Man Who Killed Don Quixote."

What it evolved into was a documentary of a $40 million film crashing and burning.

Buried within are lessons for everyone who dares tread on a film set. If nothing else, it's a 90-minute commercial for production insurnace-everything that can go wrong, does go wrong on this production.

It's a painful, hilarious, fascinating, gory, educational look at the making of a movie. Hats off to Gilliam for letting these cameras continue to roll as his 10-year dream sank under the waves of misfortune.

Available for rent from netflix.com, for sale at amazon.com and elsewhere in the world.

Keep writing.
