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.
The Monty Python comedy clan skewers King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table as they quest far and wide for the Holy Grail. The Black Knight suffers gory dismemberment at the hands of Arthur himself yet maintains that "it's just a scratch."
