Lost in La Mancha. 2002. USA/Great Britain. Directed by Keith Fulton, Louis Pepe. 35mm. 93 min.
Narrated by the unflappable Jeff Bridges, Lost in La Mancha guides us through a cinematic catastrophe in the making. Director Terry Gilliam arrives in Spain in August 2000 to begin filming his decade-long dream project The Man Who Killed Don Quixote, a science-fiction story that was to star Johnny Depp as a contemporary Sancho Panza who travels back in time to aid Don Quixote. But anything that could go wrong did, and the film never materialized. (The Man Who Killed Don Quixote was eventually completed, 18 years later, premiering at the 2018 Cannes Film Festival.
