Stockholm Visionary Award to Terry Gilliam

Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas

American film-maker Terry Gilliam has been awarded this year’s Visionary Award at the Stockholm Film Festival.

The festival jury cited Gilliam’s surreal imagery and unique inventiveness in making films like “Time Bandits”, “Brazil”, and “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas”.

The former Monty Python member says the work to entertain others has not always been enjoyable to himself. He told reporters here it was a hard job, and if he hadn’t been so obsessed with making movies, he might have had a happier life.

Gilliam’s most recent film, “The Brothers Grimm” was delayed by a year because of feuding with the Miramax studio, which may be why h doesn’t share studio concerns about illegal downloading.

About those who do it, Terry Gilliam says ”Good luck to them, I don’t care. The studios have been cheating me for so many years, if somebody cheats them, I’m not worried”.
