Gilliam's initial solo directing effort came in 1977 with Jabberwocky, which starred Michael Palin and offered glimpses of the brilliantly imaginative visual style that would become Gilliam's trademark. In 1985, he helmed what many regard as his masterwork, the dystopian satire Brazil, which received a Los Angeles Film Critics award for Best Film.
More dazzlingly original movies would follow for Gilliam in the '80s and '90s, including The Adventures of Baron Munchausen, 12 Monkeys (starring Bruce Willis) and the drug-fueled, surreal Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.
In this zany alien thriller, a bizarre crew of extraterrestrials endows doleful schoolteacher Neil with the power to do anything he chooses. However, he's also now responsible for saving the Earth from total destruction.
