''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.

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.

"Terry Gilliam's brilliant and bizarre 1984-esque comedy drama with Jonathan Pryce as a man working for a ministry who dreams of a beautiful woman and needs to get to her before the government does. Brimming with invention and surreal moments of madness, along with an outstanding cast including Robert De Niro, Bob Hoskins and Michael Palin playing against type. See the full director's cut of you can and enjoy a master filmmaker at his brilliant best."

"23.2.2018, Blu-Ray Omituinen sci-fifantasiakomedia, mutta kyllähän tätä oli ihan kiva katsella. En ihan täysin ymmärtänyt tätä elokuvaa, joten ajattelin katsoa tämän uudestaan joskus. "

Movie Reviews (401-450) (50 movies items)

" The best adaptation/reimagining/update of "1984" that has ever been done. The fact that Terry Gilliam went to war against Universal Studios so that we got to see his version and not a edited studio version with a tacked-on stupid happy ending makes me happy. The film is full of fantastic visuals and I love this dark depressing future where people drown in bureaucracy and official papers something that we get closer and closer to."
