For years I didn't want this to be my favourite film. Whilst Gilliam fills the screen to perfection for the whole 2 hours, with creativity, nonsense and astonishment, it's the film's darkness that makes me just a little wary of it - and its closeness to the truth. If you appreciate the kind of film that needs to be watched at least twice to get it, then this video will repay its price handsomely. Don't bung it on in the corner while you're getting ready to go out, give yourself to this film. It's the tiny flaws that make Brazil a true masterpiece.
