Terrence Vance Gilliam (November 22, 1940-) is a cartoonist, animator and film director, best remembered as the token American member of Creator/MontyPython (although he revoked his American citizenship years later and became a full British citizen) and the surrealist cut-out animations he created for ''Series/MontyPythonsFlyingCircus''. As the series progressed, he also did many small roles the other actors didn't want to perform for various reasons, and had very few speaking parts, if you forget his voice acting during the animated segments (one of his most notable lines is "I want more beans!"; he was also Cardinal Fang of the Spanish Inquisition). He wrote a number of the sketches, and from there co-wrote the troupe's three films based on original material with the rest of the troupe, on which he also played much more parts than he usually would in the series. He co-directed ''Film/MontyPythonAndTheHolyGrail'' and directed the opening segment of ''Film/MontyPythonsTheMeaningOfLife'', "The Crimson Permanent Assurance".

In the 1990s, things were looking up with ''Film/TheFisherKing'' (1991), ''Film/TwelveMonkeys'' (1995), and ''Film/FearAndLoathingInLasVegas'' (1998). Then at the TurnOfTheMillennium, his films became a parade of bad situations behind the scenes. ''The Man Who Killed Don Quixote'' took '''nineteen years''' of on-and-off production to complete thanks to trials and tribulations covered in the documentary ''Lost in La Mancha''. ''Film/TheBrothersGrimm'' (2005) was beset by ExecutiveMeddling, this time via Bob and Harvey Weinstein. ''Film/{{Tideland}}'' (also 2005) made it to theaters, but was overlooked and shunned for its focus on pedophilia (plus it was set in, and filmed in a desert, but it ''just kept raining'' during filming). And finally, perhaps saddest of all, ''Film/TheImaginariumOfDoctorParnassus'' (2009) became Creator/HeathLedger's final film when [[AuthorExistenceFailure he died before completing his role]].

Added DiffLines:

* SlidingScaleOfIdealismVsCynicism: Range all over the place. Brazil and Twelve Monkey's is more cynical but Time Bandits and The Fisher King are more on the idealistic end, while Baron and Docter Parnassus might be in the middle.
