  1. Brazil (1985)

    A bureaucrat in a retro-future world tries to correct an administrative error and himself becomes an enemy of the state.

    The Plot Synopsis above doesn’t capture this film. If you know Terry Gilliam, YOU KNOW it’s gonna be a fun ride. Bizarre and whimsical from start to end, there’s so much to look at.

    A sci-fi masterpiece! from a director who does fantasy comedies. After reviewing The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus (2009) i had the urge to watch another Gilliam…

    Jonathan Pryce was brilliant in his performance as the mild mannered desk jockey and the winged hero. He did well as the central character in this oh-so-crazy world. The sets and characters were truly one for the optic senses. And “Woah!” remember Robert De Niro is in this! And what about the demented “interrogators”??? Twisted!

    There’s just so much to talk about “visually” and the prosthetic work… genius. The song is still running in my head. “Braaaaziiiiiiil!”

    TRIVIA: The samurai sequence was originally conceived to reflect Terry Gilliam’s love for Akira Kurosawa films.

    A glimpse into the future, when the shit has hit the fan in this utopian disaster. Filled with paperwork and rules governed by greed and superficiality. It may be hard to digest at first, but make no mistake - this is a classic. And a great one at that.
