This is a 2-disc set but I watched only the feature disc. It is a documentary on Terry Gilliam's failed attempt to make a film about Don Quixote, some 20 years back. As a documentary it is fairly interesting, but I still think only fans of Gilliam would find it worthwhile. Guess I am one.

The film offers a nice overview of Gilliam's past struggles. What I like most about the documentary is how it emphasizes the fact that any time a film is made, it is a huge accomplishment. Even if it is a terrible hunk of garbage, someone still managed to pull people and resources together to create something.
