    Which one is his best?

    I don't really know. I really like the Monty Python series, but it's still hard to say which movie I think it's the best one.

    What do you say?

    Time Bandits is the one to watch but Brazil ( not Twelve Monkeys) is the best movie .
    Can't say I like his style especially though. Either he's a bit mental or just trying too hard.

    Hate Jabberwocky with a passion.

    I'd have to go with Brazil. I fucking love that film to the max.

    I like Jabberwocky, though. And I also love 12 Monkeys.

    Gilliam had the rights to film Watchmen at one point. However after a conversation with Alan Moore, he agreed that it was impossible to translate.

    If only Snyder had been so humble.

    Have to catch Brazil have heard wonders about it and it fascinates me as it is (a bit like Metropolis and Ivan The Terrible, all films I want to watch just need to get my hands on) but that I've seen of the Monty Pythons Life of Brian is absolutely inescapable, and that other movie he made Big Fish was quite interesting, though I doubt it's his best.

    Time Bandits is a Classic, that is the best for sure, i enjoyed brazil and The Adventures of Baron Munchausen was alright but Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas is one of his best films so far.

    Big Fish was a Tim Burton movie, mong.
