The Man Who Killed Don Quixote

Directed by
Terry Gilliam

Terry Gilliam has been trying to make this film since we were budding film fans, and it’s our overwhelming pleasure to bring it to Knoxville for an exclusive weeklong engagement.

“Witty, goofy, and glorious, The Man Who Killed Don Quixote is Terry Gilliam’s best film in two decades.” – RogerEbert.com

The Man Who Killed Don Quixote is the story of Toby (Adam Driver), a cynical advertising director, who finds himself trapped in the outrageous delusions of an old Spanish shoe-maker who believes himself to be Don Quixote. In the course of their comic and increasingly surreal adventures, Toby is forced to confront the tragic repercussions of a film he made in his idealistic youth – a film that changed the hopes and dreams of a small Spanish village forever. Can Toby make amends and regain his humanity? Can Don Quixote survive his madness and imminent death? Or will love conquer all?

“It’s as if Gilliam is pulling us into his madness, into a world where things are both better and more dangerous.” – Village Voice
