it was amazing

Poor poor Terry. The disaster that has become Parnaus made me get this back down and read through it. As I can only imagine he's spent the last week locked in a room screaming despite the heavy sedation, I feel even sorrier for the poor bastard then I usually do.

He has such good ideas, and his attention to detail is astounding, some of his rough pre production illustrations are exactly as they appear in his films. He's a true visionary and its a shame that the American film industry is too small for him. (Not that the man hasn't had his missteps).

I truly truly hope that Parnaus gets made some day. It looked and sounded soooo good. And not just because Tom Waits played Satan.

I can't wait for the day that Gilliam makes a truly great film again and shoves it down everyone's throats.

Still that time looks like it'll be longer and longer coming every day.
