Our Daily Free Stream: Terry Gilliams - Brazil. So wie Orwells 1984 eine Variation unserer Gegenwart, Zukunft und Vergangenheit darstellt, genauso ist Brazil ein Spielchen mit Orwell. Brazil kreiert eine Welt, die unserer gar nicht unähnlich sieht - abgesehen davon, dass sie viel düsterer ist und einige technische Standarts schon weiter entwickelt wurden. Das politische System entspricht zum Glück auch nicht unserem. Die Gesellschaft in Brazil wird durch eine umfassende Organisation kontrolliert, so dass für den Bürger nur ein Leben voller Paranoia bleibt. Die Polizei gleicht einem Terror Kommando, um Andersdenkende zu jagen. Das Leben ist verdriesslich und gemein. Hier lebt Sam Lowry (Jonathan Pryce) sein jämmerliches Sein und arbeitet im Grunde immer am Computer-Bildschirm. Hin und wied...

"Brazil" by Yojimbo

Terry Gilliam's bizarre and unique vision of an unspecified time in the 20th century stars Johnathon Pryce as a mid level bureaucrat haunted by dreams of a beautiful woman. When an administrative error results in the arrest and death of an innocent man, he actually meets her and takes on the fascistic establishment (in which bureaucracy has literally gone mad) to "save" her from them. This is surely the film that Terry Gilliam was born to make; it's so uniquely "his" that no-one else could possibly have made it. In fact it's so out of the box that the studio only released it under extreme duress. The production design of retro-styled technology combined with war-time era fashions and propaganda is fantastic and is a clear influence on Dark City which itself is often cited as the template ...

Brazil review

Sam Lowry (Jonathan Pryce) keeps having recurring dreams of saving a girl while in flight with angel wings. Jill Layton (Kim Greist) is seen by Sam, who was the same lady she has being dreamed of. He sees Jack Lint (Michael Palin) after being transferred to another Department. Lowry searches Jill and finally explains his situation. Archibald "Harry" Tuttle (Robert De Niro) plays an important role in the near conclusion.
A few key lines from the film: Sam – “Yes... No... I don't know. I don't know what I want.” “My, how time flies!” Helpmann – “Bad sportsmanship. A ruthless minority of people seem to have forgotten good old-fashioned virtues. They just can't stand seeing the other fellow win.” The cinematography, costumes, settings, and score were spectacular. The symbolism's of te...

Travis Bickle Bilbo Baggins Sir Gallahad the pure

i heard all this hype about this movie and how "important" it is. turns out i was really disappointed. I love abstract movies and this started off like a weird comedic 1984 meets monty python (yeah i know who directed it), but throughout the movie, the harder i tried to like it, the more stupid it got. I basically waited for De Niro to show up and he was onscreen for less then maybe five minutes total. That and Bob "super mario" Hoskins playing a weird electrician were about the only good parts. Bilbo baggins and the old guy from the pirates movies are two of the more major characters so...there's that i guess. 12 monkeys is waaaaay better. The last 30 minutes pretty much throughout any point and just got annoying. Plus the title...why? Because of the song? still....dumb title. But that's...
