Über diesen Titel
Heaven's Gate , by comparison, was a party in Paradise. Some of cinema's legendary artists renowned for their work with Fellini, Godard, Fassbinder, and Herzog among others would unwittingly unite to create the greatest financial disaster in movie history: The Adventures of Baron Munchausen . Andrew Yule goes behind the scenes of Gilliam's epic and unravels, twist by agonizing twist, the contorted drama which saw the original budget of $23.5 million rocket to an astronomical $46 million making it one of the most expensive features in history. Hardcover.From Library Journal:
Gilliam's 1988 film The Adventures of Baron Munchausen was one of the greatest financial disasters in film history. Yule ( Life on the Wire: The Life and Art of Al Pacino , LJ 10/1/91) here recounts how a talented group of filmmakers let ego, greed, and jealousy turn this production into a cash-devouring quagmire. The central characters are Gilliam and the fast-talking producer Thomas Schuhly. While these two bickered, the production became immersed in a morass of logistical problems, infighting, and costly scams. Amazingly enough, the finished product received excellent notices and four Academy Award nominations. Blame for the film's failure, according to Yule, lies with shoddy distribution and lack of publicity by Columbia Pictures. This nuts-and-bolts look at movie making is recommended for most film libraries.
