Brazil [DVD] [1985]

  • SKU: 3346588
  • Release Date: 03/31/1998
  • Rating: R
Terry Gilliam's futuristic nightmare movie Brazil comes to DVD with a widescreen transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85:1. A closed-captioned English soundtrack is rendered in Dolby Digital Surround. Spanish and French subtitles are accessible. Supplemental materials include production notes, talent bios, and theatrical trailers. This disc is all right, but fans of the film will probably want to take a look at the special edition that is loaded with information about the infamous war Gilliam fought with the studio to get this film released.

    Pretty Good Movie

    Posted
    shootfirst6501

    This is a great edition of a pretty good movie. Terry Gilliam's film was recut for theatrical release, and is presented in two versions on this 3-disc set -- the director's cut, and the "Love Conquers All" edition, which has a sappily optimistic ending. The cast is pretty good, featuring performances from Jonathan Price in the lead role, Kim Griest as the object of his affection, Michael Palin as a coworker of Price's who's not all that he seems, and Ian Holm as Price's nervous boss. Robert De Niro and Bob Hoskins appear in small roles. The set design and cinematography are interesting and weird, just like the film itself. This is a definite addition to your collection if you're a Monty Python and/or Terry Gilliam fan.

    I ahve to admit that I did not care for this movie when I first saw it. In fact, I think I probably ended up turning it off. But I kept coming back to it inspite of the fact that I don't usually care for sci-fi, and now I can really appreciate the movie and all its ideas. The criterion package of supplemental features is outstanding. This is the version to get for anyone who is a fan.

    There are very few movies that I would recommend to anyone. This would be one of those movies. All of the themes in the movie are alive and well. Personal privacy, terrorism, big government and love. More relevant today then when it was originally released. You owe it to yourself to at least watch this movie once in your life.

    TERRY GILLIAM'S MASTERPIECE

    One of those films you have to watch a couple times to find everything it offers. Terry Gilliam has a way with his mind and translating it to film. This is my all time favorite Gilliam film and without a doubt in my top 100 greatest films of all time list.

    Uses comedy to foreshadow an oppressive futuristic society that is as relevant today.

    It's a great movie that got a lot of stuff right about the future . Seems a little dated because of the technology depiction but still enjoyable.

    One of the best post-apocalyptic movies ever. It's very long, but a classic well worth your time.
