Critic Reviews for The Man Who Killed Don Quixote
It's fitfully entertaining. I will say that Jonathan Pryce is perfect in [this] role.
"The end result is messy, ragged, uneven, all over the place. But it's also the single best Gilliam film to hit theaters in 20 years."
To anyone who has followed the parabolic arcs of Gilliam's career, it's a fascinating text; to the more casual viewer, it might come off only as a meandering mess.
The story doesn't follow Cervantes in every detail, but there is no mistaking Gilliam's deep appreciation of the book. "The Man Who Killed Don Quixote" works best as an exuberant, not always disciplined work of critical appropriation.
Don Quixote turns out to be a pretty typical Gilliam film: whimsically daffy, frantically overstuffed, and art-directed to within in an inch of its life. It's often transporting, but even more often exhausting.
