Set to chronicle director Terry Gilliam’s long-planned adaptation of Cervantes’ Don Quixote, documentarians Keith Fulton and Louis Pepe stumbled into a comedy of errors: The movie blew up in Gilliam’s face. Derailed by a debilitated leading man (Jean Rochefort) and a freak flood, the shoot folded six days in – but not before providing the grist for a now-funny, now-melancholy unmaking-of story. EXTRAS They border on overkill, what with nine deleted scenes and six more video ”sound bite” outtakes, but two hour-long interviews with Gilliam (one by Salman Rushdie, the other by New York Times critic Elvis Mitchell) convey both his sizzling intellect and his tendency toward mania.
