9 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Paul A. Mcdowell on March 13 2002
Format: DVD
Brazil, despite the science fiction, social commentary and surrealism, is at it's core a film about a man who trapped by the mundanity of life, imagines himself in a more fantastic world.
Jonathan Pryce stars as a tiny unimportant member of a vast hyper-capitalistic society. Life is cold and dreary for everyone. All his spare time is spent dreaming of magical romantic worlds and the beautiful woman who lives there. One day, a simple beaucratic mistake causes a monumental disaster. Not that anyone cares... they just don't want to be blamed. Sent to solve the problem, or maybe to be a scapegoat, Pryce accidentally meets the literal woman of his dreams. As he pursues her, he brings suspicion on himself of being a terrorist (the scourge of the government), and his dreams begin to invade his waking thoughts.
A suprising list of talent lend themselves to the film and is written, minus Kafka and Orwell themes, by Monty Python's Terry Gilliam so expect some obvious humor and much biting satire throughout. Depressing and magical without losing it's hope, any person who can identify with the main character should find themselves entranced.
Despite being made in 1985 the special effects prove to be suprisingly effective (although easily noticed). I personally think this movie is the second best Science Fiction film, 2001 being first, and the best 1984 type movie ever made.

In a nutshell, if you love a movie that is NOT main stream and eccentric, you will love this one. The whole cinematography is a masterpiece. I haven't seen anything like that before. Its a long movie but it does grab and consume you. The cast is awesome incl. Robert De Niro, Jonathan Pryce etc. I would say this one is a real spectacle when it comes to unusual movies.

This is one of the most widely requested Blu-Ray transfers from the Criterion collection and it does not disappoint. There's no point going into the details of one of the great, critically acclaimed films in Terry Gilliam's body of work, there's already massive amounts of critique and analysis dedicated to that. What's important is that Criterion finally stepped up and gave fans of the movie an alternative to the bare bones, Universal edition that came out previously.

While both transfers are generally comparable in quality, the new Criterion edition still slightly edges out the Universal transfer for overall quality. There's still a layer of film grain apparent, especially in effects heavy portions like Sam's dream sequences, where the softness of the shots due to optical effects really stands out now. Also for sticklers of digital noise reduction, if there is any used here, it's not as apparent to scrutiny at it was in the Universal release. Best of all of course, is the gamut of Criterion extras included here, all of which come from the previous DVD release, including the studio "Love Conquers All" version and the attendant documentaries. For fans of Brazil, there is simply no question; this is the best the film has ever been to date. For people that have somehow never seen this movie, this is a good place to start.

It's premise is absurd of course but hilarious, I could watch this movie over and over again, and now that it is released on Blue Ray maes it all the more enjoyable.

I saw this movie years ago and loved it. The copy I purchased is new and just as wonderfully fresh and when I last saw it. Thank you for prompt service and a perfect copy!

This review applies to Brazil (The Criterion Collection) [Blu-ray] ASIN: B009D004X6.

An amazing, funny, adventure, love story, and I'd say surreal & wacky with some British-style humor.

This film is so different from anything else I've ever seen, but it is easy to follow, easy to enjoy. Any one can just sit down, feel sympathy for the characters, and get a good laugh.

A big part of the plot is arbitrary authority and those who mindlessly follow it, but its done with a love story, with lots of humor, and I would say a pre-teen would not be bored, but likewise a 4th year film student would not be bored either.

A big reason I buy a blu-ray is the extras (commentary, interviews, making-ofs, reviews). Second reason is to get the full uncut length (TV and even movie theatres will have the film edited down from the director's cut so they can get more runs in). Third reason is to get full restored 1080p quality.

The Criterion Collection version of Brazil has all those things. Lots of great extras. Copying from the product description:
DIRECTOR-APPROVED SPECIAL FEATURES:
- Restored high-definition digital transfer of Terry Gilliam’s 142-minute director’s cut, approved by Gilliam, with DTS-HD Master Audio surround soundtrack on the Blu-ray edition
- Audio commentary by Gilliam
- What Is “Brazil”?
