Lost in La Mancha

A tantalizing memorial to what could have been, 'Lost in La Mancha' offers a frank, often hilarious and frequently painful account of some of the disasters, natural and otherwise, that befell director Terry Gilliam's attempt to film "The Man Who Killed Don Quixote" starring Jean Rochefort and Johnny Depp. Gilliam's ambitious project was forced to shut down after only six days of production. Featuring surviving footage from the film, a flood of biblical proportions and extensive, intimate interviews with a compellingly animated Gilliam and the rest of his crew, directors Keith Fulton and Louis Pepe (who worked with Gilliam on the acclaimed "The Hamster Factor and Other Tales of 12 Monkeys" documentary; contained on the "12 Monkeys" DVD) were granted unprecedented access for what must be the only 'unmaking' of in the history of cinema. Narrated by Jeff Bridges.
