    Great to finally see some positive news about Terry Gilliam! Next, I would really like to see the re-release of Brazil Criterion Edition in high-def. I think it would be cool if the did similarly to the “Close Encounters” Blu-Ray disc.
    That, among with “Barry Lyndon” and “A.I. : Artificial Intelligence” would be my most anticipated high-def titles.

    Because Sony distributes that movie on home video in North America too.
    I love Munchausen, glad to see it’s getting the treatment.

“What Quibi trying to do is get to the next generation of film narrative. The first generation was movies, and they were principally two-hour stories that were designed to be watched in a single sitting in a movie theater [ED: After formats like the nickelodeon]. The next generation of film narrative was television, principally designed to be watched in one-hour chapters in front of a television set. I believe the third generation of film narrative will be a merging of those two ideas, which is to tell two-hour stories in chapters that are seven to ten minutes in length. We are actually doing long-form in bite-size.”

“The important thing is: what makes the audience interested in it? Of course, I don’t take on any roles that don’t interest me, or where I can’t find anything for myself in it. But I don’t like talking about that. If you go into a restaurant and you have been served an exquisite meal, you don’t need to know how the chef felt, or when he chose the vegetables on the market. I always feel a little like I would pull the rug out from under myself if I were to I speak about the background of my work. My explanations would come into conflict with the reason a movie is made in the first place — for the experience of the audience — and that, I would not want.
