COMMENTARY TRACK: Gilliam Compares Spielberg to Kubrick

Thanks to Boing Boing for bringing this wonderful clip to my attention.

Visionary director, ‘Monty Python’ member, and commercial failure Terry Gilliam discusses the differences between Stanley Kubrick and Stephen Spielberg. Gilliam’s words have a lot of relevance due to the upcoming release of War Horse and the sentimental sensationalism evident in the trailer.

For fun, compare the trailer for War Horse with Kubrick’s 1957 anti-war film Paths of Glory.
