''Yes... No... I don't know. I don't know what I want.''

A bureaucrat in a retro-future world tries to correct an administrative error and himself becomes an enemy of the state.

Jonathan Pryce: Sam Lowry

One of the truest statements about originality in art comes from T.S. Eliot: "Immature poets imitate; mature poets steal." Terry Gilliam is one of ci... read more

"It's been confusion from the word go!"

Inarguably, Brazil is the definitive Terry Gilliam movie. In a sense, it's Gilliam's Citizen Kane. Added to this, it was his first post-Monty Python feature. The Python troupe's final motion picture, The Meaning of Life, hit screens in 1983, and Gilliam perceived his liberation from the group as an opportunity to spread his creative wings.

Prima di vederlo mi aspettavo un bel film, infatti già dall'inizio il colore della pellicola prometteva bene, ho capito subito che non è uno di quei film di cui puoi anche fare a meno, insomma un cult lo riconosci dall'atmosfera, dalle scenografie e dalla fotografia sin dal primo fotogramma, appreso che fosse un capolavoro... read more

Sam Lowry is a harried technocrat in a futuristic society that is needlessly convoluted and inefficient. He dreams of a life where he can fly away from technology and overpowering bureaucracy, and spend eternity with the woman of his dreams. While trying to rectify the wrongful arrest of one Harry Buttle, Lowry meets the woman he is always chasing in his dreams, Jill Layton. Meanwhile, the bureaucracy has fingered him responsible for a rash of terrorist bombings, and both Sam and Jill's lives are put in danger.

"Reason for the future sucking: Big mega company takes over, extreme cosmetic surgery becomes the norm, and the plumbing and duct work in some buildings, really sucks. Year it takes place: Near future"

500 Essential Cult Movies (502 movies items)

" Probably best known for his Monty Python work even now, Terry Gilliam isn't the kind of writer/director who makes easy films. They're beautiful, certainly, but they're also bizarre in a way that makes us feel as if we're only given glimpses into the strange and wonderful world that exists inside Gilliam's head. If The Brothers Grimm could be called his most accessible film, then Brazil is quite possibly the least. "

A classic

“To be honest, it has been a while since I have seen this movie and I should definitely re-watch it at some point. It is considered by many as Terry Gilliam's Magnum Opus and even though it might not be my favorite movie he made (I think I actually prefer ‘12 Monkeys’), it is still pretty obvious that this movie completely deserves its prestigious reputation. Surprisingly, Roger Ebert really didn’t like it at all but he was an expection as the movie was really well received when it was released. Somehow, I still can understand Ebert though. Indeed, I really believe that Gillim is one of the most imaginative directors out there and for already more than 30 years but his movies are always confused and confusing and they can be sometimes rather frustrating to watch. Still, as usual with ” read more
