If I was to pick one favorite movie, then that movie would be totally Brazil. For your information, I’m not a Terry Gilliam fanboy in any sense, but this movie, in my honest opinion, is a work of genius.

WHAT IS IT?

Brazil is a movie released in 1985 and is widely known because of the battle Terry Gilliam fought against Universal, finally succeeding in convincing the studio to release his intended version. The film is based a lot in George Orwell’s 1984, but in a more funny and retro-futuristic way.

WHAT GENRE?

Brazil is one of those films hard to define, I could say it’s a Sci-Fi Satire, but some people found it tragic at points, I personally cried at the end. I can say it’s very nostalgic look at the 80’s and a very sad projection of the humanity’s future. It can be said that Brazil is standing exactly in the middle between Comedy and Drama, being neither. (more…)
