The movie presents such an unrelentingly imaginative and savage vision of 20th-century bureaucracy that it almost became a victim of small-minded studio management itself--until Gilliam surreptitiously screened his cut for the Los Angeles Film Critics Association, who named it the best movie of 1985 and virtually embarrassed Universal into releasing it. This DVD version of Brazil is the special director's cut that first appeared in Criterion's comprehensive (and expensive) six-disc laser package in 1996. Although the DVD (at a fraction of the price) doesn't include that set's many extras, it's still a bargain. --Jim Emerson
You get 2 cuts (the 142 Minute Director's Cut and the Love Conquers All Version) and a bonus disc with extras.
The only real difference is that, unlike Orwell, Gilliam believes that the one fragile hope is the durability of the human imagination.
The plot seemed like it was supposed to make sense yet I couldn't get my head around a few points in the film and their meaning.
