His attempt to adapt Don Quixote to the screen yielded the fantastic documentary Lost in La Mancha (2002). Actor Heath Ledger’s death completely reshaped Gilliam’s then in production The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus (2009). No matter what type of roadblocks Gilliam faces, he finds a way to keep going.
