Terry Gilliam has all but wrapped up "Don Quixote" but his recent comments on the #MeToo movement and Harvey Weinstein might make it a hard sell for distributors, that is unless he apologizes and Gilliam, well, Gilliam doesn't apologize. 
The venerable director was interviewed by a French paper (Agence France Presse) and asked about the Harvey Weinstein controversy:
“It is a world of victims,” Gilliam says. “I think some people did very well out of meeting with Harvey and others didn’t. The ones who did knew what they were doing. These are adults, we are talking about adults with a lot of ambition. Harvey opened the door for a few people, a night with Harvey — that’s the price you pay. Some people paid the price, other people suffered from it.”
 The director of such classics as "Monty Python and the Holy Grail" and “Brazil” his shooting darts at the #MeToo movement, as well, comparing it to “…like when mob rule takes over, the mob is out there, they are carrying their torches and they are going to burn down Frankenstein’s castle.”
Gilliam said the atmosphere around #MeToo has “got silly…people are being described in ridiculous terms as if there is no real humanity left anymore.” To which I say, he's half-right and half-wrong. You can't just shrug off the actual victims Terry, there is a powerful and humane purpose of this movement that cannot be denied. However, yes, I see what you're saying, it is going too far in condemning some, that could very well be innocent, without due process and consequentially ruining their careers. There's a thin line between the two and some of us are struggling to find that cushion to properly address it in a fair and just way.
Anyway, I was counting down the seconds before SJW's would go to Twitter to condemn Gilliam, more specifically Judd Apatow who has been overtly vocal as an SJW, despite, hypocritically, not condemning his buddy James Franco.
