Documentry- Lost in La Mancha

On Tuesday we watched a documentary called Lost in La Mancha. Its about how director Terry Gilliam tried to make a film called 'The Man Who Killed Don Quixote' based on the book 'Don Quixote De La Macha' and failed.

The documentary showed how a series of unfortunate events (not told by Lemony Snicket) saw the end of the film before it had even began. The reason for this was because the ideas that Terry put forward were too ambitious. It also didn't help that the actor who was supposed to play Don Quixote was too ill to do so, therefore the film had to be put on hold to see if he would get better.
