    Sorry Mr. Wayne I was running behind schedule for my deadline. Did not realize my error till I was editing and it was to late. I feel privileged to have someone of your stature watching my videos.

    The problem with Gilliam over they years is he's trying to be like Stanley Kubrick and make 2001 type films. It don't work for anyone bur he did make some real good movie

    It is 1984 on Acid. If you have not read 1984 do so before seeing Brazil, again.

    Gilliam is contextual humor, you almost had to have seen everything he has experienced, to get all the humor hidden in every frame and word. Among my friends, only those of us who were both, steeped in Science Fiction and fans of British humor, kept laughing all the way through the movie.

    You have to have seen certain other movies/read certain other books/have a certain understanding of the world & society before you can really appreciate this film. First time I tried to watch it many years ago, I just didnt get it, turned it off. This time around completely different, very much enjoyed it (apart from a couple of boring bits in the middle toward the end). Love DeNiro. It did strike me that we are living this now, pretty much, far too much bureaucracy, everyones a terrorist and all our high-tech shit for all its glory is designed to break a day after the guarantee runs out. I wonder if people felt like that when the film was made.

    In the cut down version they cut down all the dream sequences and a lot of the comedy. It's a very bad cut of the film.
