  • The Adventures of Baron Munchausen

    1988. Great Britain/Italy. Directed by Terry Gilliam. With John Neville, Uma Thurman, Robin Williams, Valentina Cortese. This visionary adaptation of Rudolph Erich Raspe’s classic book marked Dante Ferretti’s second international picture and his first Oscar nomination. A cult favorite and a financial debacle, Gilliam’s film was shot entirely at the Cinecittà studios, where Ferretti re-created the mystery and fascination of the Arab world, a Europe devastated by war, Vulcan’s underworld kingdom, Botticelli’s The Birth of Venus, and even the Moon. 126 min.
