"Listen, kid, we're all in it together".
Man, I used to laugh at how ridiculous the future in this movie was. Now, I just cry inside due to how close we are to it.
Terry Gilliam's imaginative and black-comedic adaptation of George's Orwell's dystopia, Brazil (1985) turns 1984's condemn of fascism into a satire of modern bureaucracy, consumerism and the Thatcher-Reagan Era.
Gilliam conveys his ideas through art design, visual flair and a comedic sensibility. With the use of sight gags, the film repeats the claustrophobic theme of block-like building units, cubicles and boxes. By making a black comedy of brilliant excess about surveillance, terrorism and office culture, Brazil remains topical, rightfully recognised as a masterpiece and one of the most visionary films of the eighties.
