You may recall a topic I launched a few weeks ago in honor of Terry Gilliam's 70th birthday.

Here it is, along with some samples of the crazy animation he's known for:

In today's news, variety reports that his next project, an incredible bizarre steam punk tale entitled "1884", is on the way.

Read all about it here.

You have to see it for yourself to apprecaite jus how extraordinary this is going to be.

It's a mixture of puppets, 2D and 3D animation.


Check this out...




If you're really looking to be blown away, try this for size...




There's only one Terry Gilliam, and "1884" is a perfect example of the unique genius behind this project.

Yeah, per Gilliam's usual bats**t insane cinematic visions, I think this seems almost normal--especially when you compare with Baron Munchausen and Brazil.

Now if only, finally, he can get his Don Quixote off the ground sometime this century . . . that'd be the killer movie to end them all, dude.
