Just as George Orwell's 1984 is an alternate vision of the past, present and future, so "Brazil" is a variation of Orwell's novel. The movie happens in a time and place that seem vaguely like our own, but with different graphics, hardware and politics.

Reviews about Brazil: Boxed Set (7):
Take a naive, idealistic young man, and put him in a self-consuming, self-perpetuating bureaucracy. Add beautiful woman. The result is tragically hilarious. We laugh, because we're laughing at ourselves.

Terry Gilliam's best movie at the time, and the studio didn't want to release it. With this set, see the movie as it was intended, and then see how a movie can be completely ruined by a studio executive. Gilliam's movie is actually my unauthorized biography, and the studio edit is the lie they told me when I was young.
I remember seeing this film in theatre opening day in 1985. The theatre was half empty and as the film unfurled people kept leaving. I was left puzzled, not by the movie... but by their reactions.
This film is a true masterpiece of Orwellian dark comedy! But it is also not for everyone...if you are a pedestrian film goer you might be scratching your head and muttering ...WTF...?
I was right into this film from frame one. As anyone who knows this film, it has one of the most infamous histories in the 1980’s. The battle between Syd Sheinberg and Terry Gilliam is pure legend and this amazing disc has the doc.
This disc has every possible version of the film that has ever been edited together.
The world of BRAZIL is one of technological nightmares; a world devoid of life, where status and information have taken the place of love and happiness. The government has become so overly-concerned with efficiency and control that it has simply lost touch with the meaning of the two. It is in this world that we first meet Sam Lowry, a government paper-pusher who frequently retreats from his job at the Ministry of Information into the sanctity of his mind, where he dreams of flying freely over green pastures to meet the woman of his dreams. When he awakens, he finds himself caught in the midst of a bureacratic foul-up that has sentenced an innocent man to death while allowing an underground terrorist to continue subverting the "status quo." Lowry becomes entangled with the elusive Archibald Tuttle while attempting to settle the affairs of the now-deceased Archibald Buttle, which leads him to discovering that the woman of his dreams is very much a reality. It is then up to Sam to save this mysterious woman when she becomes the next unwitting victim of a government gone mad!

BRAZIL is one of Terry Gilliam's finest films, and one whose social significance is perhaps more relevant now than ever before in an age where information and accessibility have taken such a prevalent role in our daily lives. Many of the darker themes involving the government's oppression of its people are broken up by Gilliam's light-hearted humor. We take great joy in laughing at the absurdity on screen, while recognizing that BRAZIL is as much a black comedy as it is a sad reflection of our own bitter reality. The talented cast is led by Jonathan Pryce as our reluctant hero, Sam, who is thrust into a world of political upheaval despite all of his efforts to remain unnoticed. Pryce is wonderful in the role, as he is able to point out the lunacy of all that surrounds him with a range of frustrated looks and snide remarks. He is joined by Robert De Niro and Katherine Helmond in leading roles, with brilliant appearances by Ian Holm, Bob Hoskins, and Ian Richardson as government busybodies who try desperately to uphold a system that is falling apart around them. The incredible production design imagines a future in which the technology has become terribly outdated, where tiny computer screens are viewed through gigantic magnifying glasses and ugly metal ducts protrude from every building in the name of "efficiency." It is no wonder that Sam chooses to dream of the open country when he is locked inside the cold, cement prison walls of the city.

Bleak and depressing, yet utterly entertaining at the same time, Terry Gilliam captures the perils of a not-too-distant future with clever wit and satire. BRAZIL is essential viewing for any film fan, and a unique experience that is unlike any other.

I Like Horror Movies
I was torn between getting the Criterion Blu- Ray or the Universal release. But seeing all of the extras that came with the Criterion, and the fact that the transfer was approved by Terry Gilliam, I finally opted for the Criterion version.

It looks fantastic and at 142 min. is 10 minutes longer than the Universal version. My main complaint is the sound; like most DTS soundtracks, when the volume is turned up to a comfortable volume for dialogue, inevitably you come to an action sequence that blasts you out of your chair, forcing you to turn the volume back down until the next sequence of dialogue. However in 5.1 surround, you can generally have the center channel set higher to even things out. Unfortunately the Criterion version of Brazil merely remasters the stereo soundtrack of the original film into DTS 2.0 (Stereo) which divides the dialogue, music and sound effects between your right and left channels only. I was constantly turning my volume down during explosions, etc. only to turn it up again when the characters were speaking.

Looking at the specs of the Universal edition I see that the soundtrack is DTS 5.1; I wish the Criterion edition would've at least given us that option.

It remains a great film and I'm glad to have it for the Gilliam approved "Director's cut" with all the extras, but if I found a cheap copy of the Universal version, I'd be tempted to get it just to compare the soundtrack quality.
