I have to say that I was also quite satisfied with *12 Monkeys*.  A fan of
Gilliams, I had been anxiously awaiting *12 Monkeys* and I was not
disappointed.
 
In Edward R. O'Neill's previous message, he said:
 
>As a 'remake' of or hommage to Chris Marker's *La Jetee*
 
I've heard this from several sources; however, in an on-line conference,
Mr. Gilliam was asked about his inspiration from *La Jetee*.  He stated
that he had never actually seen it and that he had to fight with the
American Writer's Guild about the credit at the end of the film (which
reads: Inspired by the film La Jetee).
 
I'm not sure if he was kidding or not, but it seemed like one of his more
serious answers (he claimed John Cleese had died years ago and there was a
big cover up).  Does anyone know the story behind that credit or if it was
only the screenplay that had been inspired by *La Jetee*?
 
BTW, *Brazil* actually takes place "the other side of now", not the future.
 A nit-picky thing, I know, but I asked a question in the aforementioned
on-line conference with the director comparing the futures of *Brazil* and
*12 Monkeys* and he was kind enough to correct me that *Brazil* is not the
future.
