"An extremely entertaining and hilarious presentation of every film director's worst nightmare" - Woody Allen

A tantalizing documentary as hilarious as it is tragic, the critically acclaimed theatrical hit, Lost In La Mancha, tracks maverick filmmaker Terry Gilliam's madcap mission to film The Man Who Killed Don Quixote. As he struggles to complete his masterpiece, he and his cast and crew are beset by obstacles more catastrophic than anything Hollywood could have imagined.

With an all-star cast featuring Johnny Depp (Chocolat, Donnie Brasco) and one of cinema's most daring directors at the helm (Brazil, 12 Monkeys), Gilliam's larger-than-life project seems destined for success. And yet, Gilliam's fanciful dream turns into a filmmaker's nightmare as a limited budget, the deafening roar of F-16s flying overhead, and a hailstorm straight from the Bible all conspire to halt the film's production. Capturing this mayhem on camera, the filmmakers were granted unlimited, behind-scenes access to Gilliam's frantic but inspired creation. With Jeff Bridges as narrator (The Big Lebowski), they include surviving footage from the film and intimate interviews with an infectiously energetic Gilliam, his cast, and his crew to reveal what must be the only 'unmaking of' in the history of cinema.
