Reino Unido Edition, PAL/Region 2 DVD: IDIOMAS: Inglés ( Dolby Digital 5.1 ), WIDESCREEN, EXTRAS: Acceso De la Escena, Biografías, Cantidad Alternativa, Escenas Suprimidas, Fabricación De, Menú Interactivo, MoldeEquipo Interview(s), SYNOPSIS: En el año 2000 Terry Gilliam intentó llevar el Quijote a la gran pantalla en un proyecto llamado 'El Hombre que Mató a Don Quijote'. Sin embargo, una serie de desgracias para la historia del cine hace que nos tengamos que conformar con el documental 'Lost in la Mancha' de Keith Fulton y Louis Pepe sobre el rodaje de éste magnífico sueño de Gilliam en España. En él veremos como los técnicos se desesperarán por el modo de trabajar de Gilliam, una mente caótica y genial donde hierve una imaginación desbordante. Además, el equipo de rodaje se enfrentará a una serie de desgracias inverosímiles; tendrá que luchar contra estruendosos F16 del ejercito español, tormentas apocalípticas en las Bárdenas y el actor principal, Jean Rochefort, se retorcerá con una doble hernia discal cabalgando a Rocinante hasta su retirada a Francia para recuperarse. Un proyecto con financiación Europea, ya que la extravagancia y genialidad que hace grande a Terry Gilliam también le cierra puertas en Hollywood. APANTALLADO/ADJUDICADO EL: Concesiones de BAFTA, Concesiones Europeas De la Película, Concesiones Independientes Británicas De la Película, ...Perdidos en La Mancha / Lost In La Mancha
The story of the film project "The Man Who Killed Don Quixote" that was forced to shut down just days after filming started. Features surving footage and interviews with the cast and crew.

Not only was it never finished, but it barely got into production before the whole thing crashed and burned, to the point where you seriously wonder if someone put a curse on Gilliam's production. The whole high-budget madhouse is chronicled in "Lost in La Mancha," a fascinating documentary that follows the whole trainwreck from beginning to end.
For several years, Terry Gilliam had been seeking funding for his time-traveling, satirical movie about Don Quixote and a young ad executive from the 21st century. But because of his unique style (which doesn't really lend itself to blockbusters) and his previous flop "The Adventures of Baron Munchausen," investors weren't exactly lining up. But Gilliam did manage to get the funding, as well as his dream cast of Jean Rochefort as Don Quixote and a pre-pirate Johnny Depp as the ad executive.
But... then things started going dramatically awry. It turned out that NATO had an airbase right near the set, meaning that the shoot was constantly interrupted by LOUD PLANE NOISE. Miscommunications on set. A flash flood that ruined a whole day of shooting. And while both Rochefort and Depp were troupers, the former ended up suffering debilitating health issues that left him unable to work.
Sadly the movie never got past the first week of production, so unlike other troubled productions by Gilliam ("The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus," anyone?) we never received an actual movie. It's a shame, since the brief moments of footage that viewers see are excellent and rather amusing -- where else do you see Johnny Depp swearing and fighting a fish?
But at least the trainwreck was somewhat salvaged by "Lost in La Mancha." There's almost a comedic quality to all the disasters that befell this production, and the surreality of it all is heightened by Gilliam's own direction. The giants, the Monty Pythonesque cartoons, the army of puppets -- it gives an extra layer of weirdness to a production that seemed... over-the-top. Gilliam himself couldn't have come up with a more bizarre comedy of errors if he had tried.
It's also a fascinating study for anyone who wants to know more about filmmaking. Terry Gilliam is a visionary and artist, but he also has to juggle a thousand unromantic tasks and jobs to actually get his movies made. For just a few minutes of usable footage, we see a few HOURS of all the nitty-gritty work that went into it. And it brings home how fragile some of these movies are, where a single problem (Rochefort's health) can topple everything.
As a final note: Terry Gilliam laughs like Tigger, and his repeated giggles will probably leave viewers wondering when he's going to announce that his top is made out of rubber and his bottom is made out of springs.
We may never get a Gilliam movie about Don Quixote, but at least we got a decent documentary out of his stillborn film. "Lost in La Mancha" is funny, sad and sometimes just strange, just like a Gilliam movie.
I have long admired the work of Terry Gilliam as well as the man himself. He is the kind of iconoclast that the world needs more of, the kind of dreamer that wakes us up, and someone with just enough demons to bring all the so-called "angels" down a rung or two.
However, in acknowledging who the man Terry Gilliam is, I have to reserve some suspicion about the "real reality" of this docudrama. Excuse the equivocation, but it's only appropriate considering my suspicions about the film. When you consider that Gilliam is a fan of Cervantes's Don Quixote, and then you consider that Cervantes became a party to his own fiction in Quixote, (inventing Benengali, the fictional original historian of the fictional "real" Quixote) and - then - you consider the man Terry Gilliam, you must then consider the liklihood that "Lost in La Mancha" is Gilliam's own "Benengali." What I mean by this is that it's quite possible that Gilliam has produced "Lost in La Mancha" to make a statement about Hollywood bureaucracy in the same way the Cervantes used Benengali to make a statement about plagiarism and literature. I know this may sound confusing, especially to those unfamiliar with Cerventes's Quixote. But it really does make sense when you acknowledge Gilliam's disdain for Hollywood bureaucracy and his iconoclastic ideals. There is also the more than coincidental similarity between Lost in La Mancha's six days of filming and Quixote's six day illness and seventh day return to sanity.
So, if you take Lost in La Mancha at face value, it's a fun, fly-on-the-wall adventure about a misadventure Hollywood style. It leaves the business of making motion pictures naked, and infuses a respect for filmmakers like Gilliam. But, if you suspect as I do that Lost in La Mancha is Gilliam's own Benengali, then you will find the message in this film and the true genius of Gilliam.
With an exclusive, almost uncomfortable closeness to Gilliam's project, we get a glimpse at other attempts to film the story (Orson Welles entertained the notion for nearly twenty years, achieving mere minutes of test footage); in-depth looks at storyboards with dialogue; screen tests of "giant" performers (as Terry quips "This is our trailer!" with his trademark Amadeus giggle); meticulous detail being applied to elaborate props and sets; auditions for character actors, and prep work with the film's would-be stars Jean Rochefort and Johnny Depp, and the overall excitement of launching a project of epic (though underfunded) vision .....
Then the cameras roll. The crew are forced to film in an area adjacent to a military testing range, and the actors can barely hear their director or own spoken lines over the roaring jets. Misunderstandings between members of the multi-national crew result in a lack of preparedness on a ridiculously tight shooting schedule. A sudden storm literally washes valuable filming equipment down a muddy gully, and transforms the locale to one totally different from the one filming was begun in. Star Rochefort suffers multiple herniated discs, causing excruciating pain while on horseback, and has to leave the production for an indefinite time. A well-rehearsed horse becomes nervous in the presence of visiting financiers to the set, and can't perform.
Production is put on hold while Terry and company await word on their afflicted star, and the assistant director resigns. It becomes apparent that the production must be aborted, the only option being to assess the damages with insurance operatives, and clearly define a clause known as Forces Majeurs.
Lost in La Mancha is an excruciating and candid look at a genius filmmaker confronted with a failed project, and the grace and stubborn optimism with which he faces it. Like his hero Sam Lowry from "Brazil", the realization may indeed be one of hopelessness, but the dream never really dies. Terry Gilliam's "un-making of" record makes for a viewing experience that is simultaneously agonizing and inspiring, a must for filmmaking hopefuls who want to be truly prepared for what can happen.
whether you get him or not, this guy is a character. and this dvd goes head on with that very man.
this particular dvd, would normally be considered the extra discs for a feature film. but since the film fell through, for the time being, we are presented with the idea of Gilliam's vision and promise of Don Quixote. which is a true journey to take. it is a true 'documentry' and has a bit more just so it can stand on it's own. whether your an aspiring filmmaker or a curious other party, this piece is truly depressing, and displays inner compilations of the set up system that is big budget production.
