Brazil (1985)

I came into this game for the action, the excitement. Go anywhere, travel light, get in, get out, wherever there's trouble, a man alone. Now they got the whole country sectioned off, you can't make a move without a form.

Brilliant as sci-fi and satire, and easily the best out of Gilliam's "Dreams" trilogy.

"There are things about me you wouldn't understand...things you couldn't understand...things you shouldn't understand."



He's a loner. A rebel. A child trapped inside an adult body. And Tim Burton's vivid imagination proves a perfect match to Pee-wee's whimsy. One of the best road movies of all time married to a childlike sense of wonder. It's heartfelt, it's hilarious, and it's eternally quotable.
