Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Pitting the imagination of common man Sam Lowry against the oppressive storm troopers of the Ministry of Information, this bitter parable for the Information Age has come to be regarded as an anti-totalitarian cautionary tale equal to the works of George orwell, Aldous Huxley, and Kurt Vonnegut. Gathering footage from both the European and American versions of his celebrated masterpiece, Terry Gilliam has assembled the ultimate 142-minute director's cut of Brazil — now in a gorgeously remastered new transfer.

Review:

"A superb example of the power of comedy to underscore serious ideas, even solemn ones." Janet Maslin, New York Times

Review:

"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." Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader

Special Features:

All-new, restored high-definition digital transfer
Audio commentary by Gilliam
Optional English subtitles
Essay by Jack Mathews
