like a bolt from the blue

a modicum of snuff / or / what cost art?

the commentaries and behind the scenes features for the adventures of baron munchausen, only available since april '08, are terrific and insightful on the practical difficulties of producing art in the extremely collaborative process that is moviemaking. eric idle is hilarious in talking about both what a genius & good friend gilliam is, yet how traumatizing the shooting of the film was. sarah polley addresses this dichotomy as well (both in the dvd & the article below).

but i'll take gilliam's side. he says: i think my priorities are right. i will sacrifice myself or anyone else for the movie. it will last. we'll all be dust.
