I recently saw Brazil and it feels as though it was filmed yesterday. A nice story of someone trapped in a confining Orwellian society where bureaucracy rules. The movie is fortunately not dark, but rather cynical and filled with sad yet amusing events. A classic!

Thumbs up Classic stuff

Classic stuff, although the style and presentation is uncannily similar to "1984".

All in all: pretty good, and fairly thought provoking; I particularly like the way it portrays bureaucratic, governing institutions as soul-less, desensitizing monsters that interfere with peoples hopes and dreams. It made me wonder to what extent peoples lives are really effected by such institutions.

Definately worth a viewing.

Smile A Great Flick!

Brazil is one of those great, rare movies that is both funny, entertaining, and makes you think.

Robert DiNiro's performance was impeccable as the duct repairman!

Thumbs up Yeah.

This film really is superb. I've seen over 20 times and I just can't get enough. Mr. Gilliam has really wonderful gift. In one scene we'll see awful poor creatures, dirt and ugly things and in other: lovely music, beautyful landscape and everything's like a dream. Wow.

Re: A classic!

I have no idea of what to think of this movie; I saw it only 5 days ago because everybody spoke so highly of it. After the movie, I thought I didn't like it, but now I catch myself thinking about it. It was the same with Jurassic Park, I saw it, thought it was okay, but kept thinking about it and now love it.

Robert De Niro was just great; for once he wasn't a cold, mean person, but more of an engaging character, who fixes ducts and slides around on ropes, not to mention providing the movie with it's catch phrase.

Re: A classic!

I just saw this movie last night, and ... wow! What a movie! Funny yet series, darkly comic yet light-hearted at times - bloody brilliant!

The acting was perfect, but then so was the cast. The dream sequences were surreal, the ending inspired.

10/10 !
