Movie Diary 2012 (551 movies items)

"13.10. Odotetusti parempi kuin muistin, ellei jopa murskaavan kova muistutus unelmien merkityksestä. Samalla tietysti yksi julmimmista komedioista ikinä naurun juuttuessa kurkkuun toinen toistaan räikeämmän yhteiskunnallisen epäkohdan edessä. Elävämmät hetket ovat niin vahvassa kontrastissa niihin nähden, että siinä missä Sam Lowry pääsee hetkeksi irti päin helvettiä järjestäytyneen byrokratian kourasta, vapautuu katsojakin vaihteeksi pingotuksesta. Huumorille pystyy naurama"

"13.10. Vihdoinkin tämä tuli telkkarista katsomiskelpoisessa muodossa eikä MTV3:n croppaamana perspallina. On se visuaalisesti mielipuolisen komea ja sellasta. Oletteko muuten nähneet sellaisen elokuvan kun Hyvät, pahat ja rumat? On meinaan melko hyvä elokuva."

Five Star Movies (165 movies items)

"Another great depiction of future as well as satiric and dry comedy of men getting stuck into the "the system". Orwellian-like manifest against totalitarism and overwhelming red tape. Still having a lot of the aspects from Monty Python era this film might seem to be just an absurd comedy yet being much more than that. Brazil is definitely one of the most horrifying films about future I have seen and probably only better depiction is Orwell's actual novel. "

Roger Ebert didn't like all the Classics (39 movies items)

" His Review : Just as George Orwell's 1984 is an alternate vision of the past, present and future, so "Brazil" is a variation of Orwell's novel. The movie happens in a time and place that seem vaguely like our own, but with different graphics, hardware and politics. Society is controlled by a monolithic organization, and citizens lead a life of paranoia and control. Thought police are likely to come crashing through the ceiling and start bashing dissenters. Life is mean and grim. The hero"

A Complete review of Terry Gilliam's work (16 movies items)

" Cast : Jonathan Pryce, Robert De Niro, Ian Holm, Bob Hoskins, Michael Palin, Jim Broadbent What was it about? A bureaucrat in a retro-future world tries to correct an administrative error and himself becomes an enemy of the state. My two cents: It is considered by many as Gilliam's ultimate masterpiece and I can't say it doesn't deserve its prestigious reputation. It is a visually impressive and the plot is quite spellbinding to follow. Basically, it is one of those tales taking "

Interesting film facts (389 movies items)

"Early title for Brazil was "1984 and a 1/2", an ode to Federico Fellini and 8½, but the film 1984 was released and the idea was scrapped, as there would have been legal trouble with the George Orwell estate. Robert De Niro wanted to play the role of Jack, but Terry Gilliam had already promised this to Michael Palin. De Niro still wanted to be in the film, so he was cast as Tuttle instead. During his trouble with a studio, Terry Gilliam asked Daily Variety for a full page ad, which cost aroun"

Brilliam Gilliant

“I saw this film when I was a young teenager and I loved it instantly.

As a Brit the almost all-British cast was particularly good and all were already established and in some cases revered.

Gilliam's pneumatic-tube / post-war-equipment feel with its dingy and idiosyncratic lights, colouring and layout are exquisite and (intentionally) echoed 1984 but with a cartoonish sense.

The entire cast was superb, so many actors I knew and already loved.

This is a film I will always treasure for its visual sumptuousness and the many-layered plot and commentary and the many references it has spawned since.

“Get ready for a wild ride. This is one of the most bizzare films of all times. Monty Python meets 1984. The first time I watch this movie I walked out scratching my head and wondering what I had jsut watched. It took another viewing to begin to understand the subtle hidden in the weirdness. Watch it at least twice before you judge it.” read more
