Terry Gilliam talks to Twitch about his latest film The Zero Theorem, his take on movie endings that leave room for interpretation, and why he just can't let his long-delayed Don Quixote project go.

Everybody's gonna have a different interpretation. I prefer to get people to use their own imagination."
