4.0 out of 5 stars BLU-RAY SPECS:
Due to a curious lack of professional reviews and details about this blu-ray, I have decided to provide information I would have found helpful prior to buying this release. Firstly, this surely has to be the same transfer used for the Region A Criterion version. The film runs at 2hrs 23min 20sec, with the 20th Century Fox logo taking up 23sec of that. This version of the...

2.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Film But Flawed Blu-Ray
Weird but excellent film, been one of my favourites for years and was looking forward to the blu-ray release.

However, what is the point of blu-rays when compared to DVDs? Ah, yes, superior visuals and sound quality, or at least supposedly.

Visually, the transfer is pretty good for a 25+ year old film (though no great improvement over an upscaled...

My only comment on this excellent and thought provoking film is to enjoy life now before the terrible world it depicts is imposed on us. We are nearly there now...

5.0 out of 5 stars Brazil - Different and Brilliant, 8 Mar. 2005
By A Customer
This review is from: Brazil [1985] [DVD] (DVD)
Very interesting film set in an alternative future where burocracy has grown out of control. Jonathan Price plays an unambious nobody until he suddenly meets the woman of his dreams, literally. He risks everything in an increasingly chaotic attempt to meet her and break free. Some good cameo performances from Robert De Niro and Bob Hoskins.

3.0 out of 5 stars what happens when no ones says "stop", 22 Mar. 2006
This review is from: Brazil [1985] [DVD] (DVD)
summaries are availible so I'll keep this short and sweet. This is a simple satire told Terry Gilliam style. Nothing is held back and no compromises are made. You can expect hyperbole, stylish silliness with dreams and reality intermingled. There isn't a bad scene in the movie.
But the best things about it also become the problems. This is Terry's baby no doubt about it and though his directing is flawless it becomes too much. Its obvious nobody was able to say no to Gilliam on this film. Everything is included though after a certain point it is no longer developing the story, it's just showing more about what you already know. I don't know how they should have edited it (and it's a moot point because it ain't happening) but the three act structure is abandoned and the audience is left waiting for a conclusion that keeps on not coming. I'm ok with a non resolution as a resolution but don't spend a half hour jerking me around.
I recommend seeing it for it's creativity and ingenuity but the long surrealist interludes towards the end will minimize repeat viewings for all but the most hardcore fans.

3.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining Chaos, 8 Jun. 2000
This review is from: Brazil (1985) [VHS] (VHS Tape)
The film was an very interesting film, it was entertaining but became frustrating at some points. I was disapointed by the small role De Niro had in it, but the film was overall satisfing and it certaintly had its moments.

Dysfunctional. Best features of Brian Rix's Whitehall farces and Iron Sky.
I have been waiting for years to get a copy.
