Synopsis:
It's only a state of mind. Jonathan Pryce stars as Sam Lowry in this surrealistic spectacle about a daydreaming bureaucrat trapped in a future dystopia where love is forbidden from interfering with efficiency. But with the help of an underground superhero (Robert De Niro) and a beautiful mystery woman (Kim Greist), Sam learns to soar to freedom on the wings of his untamed imagination, or so he thinks.

Not for me. - Brazil review by LH

It's not often I don't finish a film, but this is one. Just like Terry Gillingham and like dystopia views of the the future, but the in this film were lame. It's almost like the film is trying to be too allegorical to the detriment of the characterisations. I found Ben Wheatley's adaptation of getting Ballard's High Rise similarly difficult to sit through, despite living all his other films.

I guess what I'm trying to say if you like highly stylised films with great spring and awesome props, you'll like Brazil, but if you like film for a storyline and characterisations with a semblance of decent plot you'll drift off in Brazil and stay thinking about Putney things.... "Oooh I think I left the iron on."
