Brazil, 1985 - ★★★★

It was disappointing to find Brazil didn't live up to my memories of a great film. I'm not entirely sure why, perhaps the story doesn't quite pull together they way it should or the ridiculous romance is too distracting or maybe it was just my cold affecting my judgement.

There's no denying that it's still a crazy and amazing film to look at. Definitely of it's time but somehow simultaneously of all other times. It no longer feels futuristic, in fact it's quite scary just how prophetic Gilliam's vision was.
