Terry Gilliam talks Quentin Tarantino

As part of Terry Gilliam's amazing guest-editorship of this here website, we spoke to him about his incredible career for a very special new video strand, called Career In 40 Minutes.

What you might not know is that part of Gilliam's career includes mentoring Quentin Tarantino, and giving him advice on his Reservoir Dogs script.

They've stayed friends, and Tarantino still goes to Gilliam for his opinion.

To hear all about their history, click below - we've handily provided a chapter link to that section of the Career In 40 Minutes video.

Then, go back, and watch the thing from the start.

You'll hear Terry talk about all of his incredible films, as well as his experiences with Watchmen, nearly directing Harry Potter, Heath Ledger's performance in The Dark Knight , and so much more.
