EDITING

The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus (2009)

Perhaps not surprisingly, Gilliam tends to find an editor and stick with them. His most frequent collaborators have been Mick Audsley (Twelve Monkeys, The Imaginarium Of Doctor Parnassus, The Wholly Family, The Zero Theorem), Lesley Walker (The Fisher King, Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas, The Brothers Grimm, Tideland) and Julian Doyle (Time Bandits, Brazil and two Monty Python films). In the case of Brazil, the editing process was hijacked by the studio to manufacture a happy ending. It was only with the aid of a Variety ad (see “A”) that the film avoided scissor-happy executives. A good thing too – with his films’ unique rhythms and often uncompromising endings, Gilliam’s spirit is often found in the editing room. This is particularly true of The Zero Theorem, which had a very fast pre-production and shooting schedule; for Gilliam, “the editing was the really creative moment”.
