''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 cinema's mature poets. His Brazil features homag... 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.

Fantascienza - Grottesco - Distopico - Drammatico - Surrealistico
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.

1001 Movies ... my own version (1980's) (45 movies items)

" Notes: 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"

Slant's 100 Best Sci-Fi Movies of All Time (100 movies items)

"Through its wildly comic, furiously creative, and intensely moving façade, Terry Gilliam’s Brazil ponders a future made to sustain a draconian past molded by inequality. Overrun by communicative ducts, coated wires, cement and metals, and magnified, miniature computer screens, the future conjured up by Gilliam averts the familiar prophecy of an anaesthetized, plastic world overrun by rampantly advancing technology. Besides the obvious Orwellian elements, the filmic pedigree of Brazil is richl"
