DVD: Brazil

DVD: Brazil is a movie I’d heard a lot about, but never seen. I found a copy of the DVD at Hum, and it doesn’t disappoint. Gilliam’s vision of a dystopian future is immersive. The consumerism, the slacking, the portrait of family life – they all bring a sense of realism to the surreal world that’s constructed. And there are so many movies that have been influenced by its visual style. Worth a look if you’re a Gilliam fan, if you’re interested in the history of cinema, or if you like dystopian future films.
