Critics reviews

Fulton and Pepe are clearly fans and friends, so Lost In La Mancha never goes for the jugular; the repeated equation of Gilliam with Don Quixote himself, tilting furiously at corporate windmills, is born entirely of admiration, not scorn. But given everything the man has been through over the years (see also: Brazil), a fawning tribute to his stoic endurance feels altogether apt.
