Brazil, why the heck is it even called that? It’s hard to say with a Terry Gilliam film. These movies by Gilliam are always so weird. I’ll give him credit, he has great creativity with his shots, sets and effects. This doesn’t always translate to an entertaining movie. I felt like this movie was overly long and boring at times. Robert De Niro had a small role in this but I got excited every time he was on screen. Ian Holm had a funny little part in this too. Jonathan Pryce did okay as the leading man but I never really connected with him. The movie just feels like 1984 but stuck in weird-mode. The ending is also a bummer. I’ll applaud the creativity of the film and the director doing what he wants, but I won’t say this is a good film. I can’t recommend this one.
