    The Man Who Killed Don Quixote

    ★★★½

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Let me be frank.

      It’s clear as soon as the ‘Don Quixote’ part starts that this film was the result of a very long, very troubled production. I’m fairly sure there are too many plot threads that Gilliam wanted to put in, and the result became too disjointed and often times incomprehensible.

    When the first part of the film ended, I knew that no word from this review can do justice the masterpiece that is Moonlight. That said, I'll try and express, to the best of my abilities, the various feelings I felt while watching this movie.

    I sometimes use similes to compare films to things. For example, Black Swan is like a shard of glass, both delicate and sharp, warm and fatal. Call Me by Your Name is like an oil…
