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 the year 2035, convict James Cole volunteers reluctantly to be sent back in time to discover the origin of a virus that nearly wiped out civilization. But when Cole is mistakenly sent to 1990 instead of 1996, he's locked up in a mental hospital.
