I really enjoyed the interview... I will now go and do what Terry Gilliam tells me to..."I will think for myself... I will go and think for myself... Terry says, I must think for myself.... I obey and will think for myself..."
Thanks Paute and if you care to have just a little more Terry... here's The Man Who Killed Don Quixote support site. I don't know if you know about it... thought I'd share.
