I believe in the artistic clout of Terry Gilliam, films like this and 'The Adventures of Baron Munchausen', and 'Time Bandits' are very intriguing and sometimes thought-provoking with oddball visuals and quirky characters, kind of like Wes Anderson if he were tripping acid, and were British. This is a great film, with gothic visuals, dark storyline, likeable characters and a grim look into a Orwellian future.

Basically a retelling of 1984 but in a weird way. Not that its bad.

"A surreal look at a bleak future. A strange mix of disturbing and funny - like an hilarious nightmare." Such a great movie! Highly recommended for dystopian fans.

My recollection is that this flick was panned horribly upon its release ... I didn't see it then. I now say "HA!" to those critics.

This is a very good movie that I didn't enjoy when I first watched it years ago. It sets up a very good dystopian future setting and has a fun, well-paced plot. In my opinion, this is Gilliam's masterpiece. I am glad that I enjoyed this so much as opposed to how much Baron Munchausen was a letdown. I loved the ending. Well done in every way. Acting, setting, effects and story.

Last comment is spot on - A surreal look at a bleak future. A strange mix of disturbing and funny - like an hilarious nightmare. Deniero is great, the british humor is excellent, and the title/theme of the movie is all based on one song (Brazil) that gives you the feeling the director got to make the film particularily nightmare-fantasy like.

Brazil is a surrealistic nightmare vision of a " perfect " future where technology reigns supreme. Everyone is monitored by a secret government agency that forbids love to interfere with efficiency. A daydreaming bureaucrat becomes a victim of his own romantic illusions and the results become a humorous ,yet foreboding statement.
