[A] darkly funny and truly visionary retro-futurist fantasy.

Brazil is a stinging, Strangelovian satire of the power of the bureaucracy in an Orwellian landscape.

Terry Gilliam's ferociously creative black comedy is filled with wild tonal contrasts, swarming details, and unfettered visual invention -- every shot carries a charge of surprise and delight.

Fortunately the story of an alternative future is realised with such visual imagination and sparky humour that it's only half way through that the plot's weaknesses become apparent.

A superb example of the power of comedy to underscore serious ideas, even solemn ones.

For all its occasional long-windedness and visual dazzle, Brazil may be the Strangelove of the 1980s.

Gilliam understood that all futuristic films end up quaintly evoking the naive past in which they were made, and turned the principle into a coherent comic aesthetic.
