The Battle of Brazil
Hal Leonard Corporation, 1998 - Performing Arts - 338 pages
In 1985, Universal Pictures released Terry Gilliam's film, Brazil, under protest. Gilliam had mounted the first director's guerilla campaign against a major Hollywood studio to circumvent his mo being sliced to bits or shelved. LA Times film writer and writer Jack Mathews was right in the th the battle, acting as intermediary between the President of Universal, Sid Sheinberg and Gilliam and producer Arnon Milchan. This is a blow-by-blow account of that epic and historic fight as it happene 1985 as well as from the more sober perspective of a dozen years after.
