BRAZIL is Terry Gilliam's masterpiece. Cowritten by Gilliam, playwright Tom Stoppard, and Charles McKeown, the cult-favorite film is set in a futuristic society laden with red tape and bureaucracy. When a bug (literally) gets in the system, an innocent man is killed, leading mild-mannered Sam Lowry (an excellent Jonathan Pryce) to reexamine what he wants out of life. He decides to fight the totalitarian system in his search for freedom--and the woman he loves. The terrific, offbeat cast features Robert De Niro as a renegade heating engineer; Katherine Helmond as Sam's ever-younger mother; Michael Palin as a government-sanctioned torturer with a distaste for upsetting the status quo; Bob Hoskins as a vengeful Central Services employee; Jim Broadbent as a wacko plastic surgeon; the wonderful Ian Holm as Sam's nerve-ridden, pitiful boss, afraid of his own signature; and Kim Greist as the rebel Sam falls for. The look of BRAZIL is relentless, overwhelming, and outrageously spectacular. Giant monoliths rise from the street; government offices are a network of computers, pneumatic tubes, and narrow hallways built with Nazi-like precision; and apartment complexes are a maze of washed-out grays and numbers, all frighteningly uniform. The terrorist explosions actually bring color into this dull, monochramatic world. BRAZIL is a nightmare vision of the future, yet also hysterically funny and incisive, one of the most inventive, influential, and important films of the 1980s.

  • BRAZIL

    A very good and thought-provoking movie! A must see!

  • Gilliam's Best

    Terry Gilliam's BRAZIL is about the wildest 142 minute ride imaginable. Think 1984 done as a perverse but charming comedy. Jonathan Pryce plays Sam Lowry, a bored but efficient bureaucrat, whose vivid dream life helps compensate for his dull but harried reality. Jill Layton (the elusive Kim Greist) is the woman who haunts his dreams before they ever meet. Theirs is one of the oddest and most beguiling romantic pairings ever captured on celluloid. It's a romance that mirrors the absurdity of the fantastical, dysfunctional universe that is BRAZIL. That Criterion chose BRAZIL to be part of its elite collection of films is understandable, considering the grandiosity of its vision. And this eye-popping high-definition digital transfer brings all of it's lush, baroque imagery into hyper-focus, making for an exquisite viewing experience surpassed by none.
