Octavo, pp. [i-vi] vii-xi [xii] 1-228, illustrations, cloth-backed boards. First edition. Account of the contentious making of Terry Gilliam's landmark film, "Brazil," detailing conflicts between the director and the studio (Universal). Contains the full original screenplay written by Tom Stoppard, Charles McKeown and Terry Gilliam. In his preface to this book, the author, a reporter for the Los Angeles Times who covered the conflict as it unfolded, cheerfully admits to taking the director's side for the book: temperamental visionary artist vs. flinty timid studio. A fascinating backstage look at this most unusual movie, which combines futuristic and retro touches in its surreal satire. A fine copy in fine dust jacket. (#139858). N° de réf. du libraire 139858
Synopsis : (Applause Books). The totally restored, revamped and researched blow-by-blow recounting of the most spectacular title bout in the blood-soaked history of Hollywood. "This book documents in rare detail the back-room haggling and the attempted ego-bashing that is part of the movie business." Gene Siskel; "Told with the passion of an advocate yet with the objectivity of a crack reporter, The Battle of Brazil is a chilling, inevitably hilarious account of a great film that almost got away." USA Today.
