Art On Film: "Brazil" says
In a dystopian and darkly comic future, a simple clerical error in a massive government bureaucracy leads to the wrong man being killed and sends a low-level bureaucrat on a Kafka-esque adventure.

Starring Jonathan Pryce ("Game of Thrones", "Ronin") and Robert De Niro, Brazil has earned cult status for its innovative art design and sharp wit. Called "the most potent piece of satiric political cinema since Dr. Strangelove" by critic Kenneth Turan, "Brazil" was written and directed by Terry Gilliam (Monty Python, "12 Monkeys") and is now included in many 100-best films lists, remaining a pointedly prescient work of art.
(1985, 142 Minutes, R)
