Editorial Reviews

The LORDS of LAUGHTER--The SAINTS of SATIRE--The HIGH PRIESTS of LOW COMEDY--have sold out once again. Terry Gilliam--the disturbed American animator who shifted Monty Python from "very strange" all the way to "totally bizarre"--has finally snapped. From Baron Munchausen to Time Bandits to Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, no project has challenged Gilliam's unstable mind like this one: building an entirely new Monty Python experience out of the best pieces of the entire four-year Flying Circus run. The results, in this tiny unassuming package, are truly devastating. Brace yourself for the first-ever, ALL-ANIMATION Monty Python program--exactly as Gilliam would have done it if the BBC were crazy enough to put him in charge. Collect all six PERSONAL BEST collections. For the Python lover, they're concentrated joy. For the novice, a dangerously addictive substance to be administered with care. DVD Features: Terry Gilliam Featurette "A Retrospective of Python’s Animation"; The Terry Gilliam 15-Question, 15-Ton Megaquiz; Biography and Selected Credits; Interactive Menus; Scene Selection

The best bits of this DVD are an interview with Terry Gilliam, his animated introduction, and several of his favorite Monty Python animations edited together as a single continuous body of work.

Unfortunately, a superimposed border has been added around the perimeter of the animation, drawn to look like you're watching it through a TV set. This is likely to remind viewers with widescreen TVs that Python episodes were shot for square TVs, but it's distracting and appears to slightly crop the animation.

Also, frequent Python viewers will notice the shorts have been edited down. For example, 'House Hunters' is included, but the joke where the house enters the woods followed by a flushing sound is missing.

As a fan of all things Terry Gilliam and animation in general, I had hoped that some of his earlier animated works would be included as extras, but the only worthwhile special feature is the interview.

Since this is the sole collection of Gilliam animation available on DVD (so far, outside of the Python sets), it's worth watching at least once while hoping for an eventual 'Terry Gilliam Animation Collection' with more content and assembled with greater care.

This is OK, (sort of), but WHERE do I buy a copy of, "The Mystery of Flight". Probably the best, most cohesive animated film he ever did. It;s a crying shame that it is not available.

Do NOT buy. It says his cartoons, I foolishly thought it meant all cartoons. This lousy compilation contains very few cartoons, complete waste of time. Just youtube what you want, and skip this ripoff.
