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
Brazil is my favorite movie - as opposed to being the best movie I've ever seen which it is not.
Then there is also Gilliam's brilliant eye for composition; every shot in Brazil is meaningful in one way or another, and contributes to the film as a whole.
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.
Many of the things portrayed in this movie have come true many years after its production.Published 2 days ago by hap duffey
