An extremely well crafted world and story with classic themes as well as timeless performances that all nicely make up a very entretaining and classic dystopian film.
I have thought of my own reason why this movie is called Brazil/ the ending, reason 1, obviously is that the song 'Brazil' is played numerous times throughout the film.
Reason 2: So, I've never been to Brazil and when I look up Google images and I see these beautiful pictures of Rio de Janeiro etc. and the amazing weather, it just looks like the dream place to live, a paradise....but apparently it's a pretty dangerous place to live, with the slums it has a pretty high death rate, you have to be smart and know what streets are safe to walk down ect. It's safe to pressume Brazil is a False paradise.
Just like the end of the film is a false paradise for Sam. He's living the perfect life in his mind with his dream girl away from all the faulty machinery that's been ruining his whole life...but in reality, he's not in paradise, he's strapped in a chair without a state of mind. And to top things off he hums the song Brazil before the credits role indicating that he's in a false paradise.?
Weird and cool - truly unbelievable.
Made over Thirty years ago and holds up perfectly intact.
Amazing on many levels.
Jaw dropping sets, bizarro wackiness everywhere, and yet if you stick with it, it does kinda make sense by the end.
At least somewhat. haha
And when it's over, remember that it came in just under budget.
You won't believe it after you see it, trust me.
Too intense for the younger crowd, but an interesting take on a future of sensory overload.
