    Kind of a boring mockumentary. Depp was good but it just wasn't anything special. So many opportunities for a laugh fell by the wayside. If this is an actual documentary I don't buy it.

    At once bitterly funny and devastating, Lost In La Mancha sides with Gilliam in form and spirit, piecing together the train wreck with snaky humor and interludes that cleverly mimic his Monty Python collage animations.
  2. The documentary is fascinating, but hardly enjoyable. It's like watching ants eat an elephant.
  3. Like rubbernecking motorists, we can't help but watch with lurid fascination.
