** Obviously, ''The Man Who Killed Don Quixote'', with Johnny Depp & Jean Rochefort. Gilliam tried to revive the project eight years after the attempt documented in ''Man Of La Mancha'', but it never got past pre-production. However, thanks to a new development deal with [[http://arstechnica.com/the-multiverse/2015/06/amazon-commits-to-terry-gilliams-lost-don-quixote-film/ Amazon]], it looks like the film will actually get made, with Creator/JohnHurt now in the Quixote role.

** Filming in Spain, [[YourCostumeNeedsWork but not in La Mancha because it isn't picturesque enough]]. Gilliam's choice of filming in varre's Las Bárdenas Reales resulted in the sound being ruined by planes exercizing in a nearby NATO base and was ultimately ended by a freak storm that completely changed the landscape (LBR's unique look is caused by its rapid erosion in the first place).

** The successive castings of archetypical actors for Don Quixote, all over 70-80 years old, [[LostInImitation despite the book character being canonically in his early fifties]], who end injured because they cannot handle the physicality of the character or are diagnosed of age-related heath problems before they can shoot the movie, inevitably putting filming on hold again.

* RealitySubtext: A lifelong, seemingly futile and endlessly troubled quest to make Don Quixote ... its almost quixotic.

* ObstructiveBureaucrat: His entire career has been about flights of fancy, so naturally his films tend to rail against iron-fisted bureaucracies and the narrow-minded jobsworths who staff them.
** Probably the pinnacle of this trope was the beginning of ''Baron Munchausen'', when city administrator Creator/JonathanPryce -- graduating from playing a BeleagueredBureaucrat in {{Film/Brazil}} -- orders the execution of a soldier[[labelnote:*]]''{{Music/Sting}}, in a cameo''[[/labelnote]]. The offense? The soldier was ''so good at his job he made everybody else look bad''. A title card reveals this as "The Age of Reason".
