Drowning in an Orwellian nightmare of wanton wiretapping and illogical carnage, a bumbling bureaucrat (Jonathan Pryce) seeks salvation through a dream girl (Kim Greist) and a repairman moonlighting as a terrorist (Robert De Niro at his oddest). Terry Gilliam’s quirky cult satire Brazil has been on DVD before, but not in this luminous new Criterion transfer. Earlier editions look feebly grainy compared with the rhapsodic blues and lambent grays here. EXTRAS include a 10-year-old director’s track, and the studio’s sunnier, shorter cut.
Genre: Sci-fi and Fantasy; Starring: Robert De Niro, Jonathan Pryce, Jim Broadbent, Katherine Helmond, Ian Holm, Bob Hoskins, Michael Palin, Ian Richardson; Director: Terry Gilliam; Author: Terry Gilliam, Charles McKeown, Tom Stoppard; Release Date Wide: 12/01/1985; MPAA Rating: R
