Ha, here's an interesting idea.

So Brazil was a story about the normal world being cold and impersonal (well, it's more than that I know, but I want to get to my point and not outline the whole damn plot) but it would be interesting if Gilliam did a short follow up on it, only highlighting the movie industry in this desolate time in which Brazil takes place. Hear me out, I mean, we've got some bad movies today (Fast and Furious, XXX, Blue Crush) so why not make statements about those too?

Man1: Well, now we're doing a remake of Giant Spiders Invade 3.
Man2: But... But the original was only made 3 years ago!
Man1: Three LONG years!

I'm sorry, but in a world full of remakes (The Four Feathers has been remade 4 or 5 times now) that would be a statement.

Re: Ha, here's an interesting idea.

The thing is, he DOES make references to the movie industry in the movie Brazil - try watching it again and see for yourself.

As for some of the 'bad' movies you listed, keep in mind that not all movies need to evoke deep sentiment or harsh plot. If they did, then we would be the victims displayed in Brazil all over again. We should remind ourselves that life needs moments to plop on the couch in our underwear, throwing popcorn around as we watch Rambo or Austin Powers
