BRAZIL (1985) - Terry Gilliam Season

Fri 27th July 2018
Deptford Cinema, London, SE8 4PQ

If we had to define one film as Terry Gilliam's absolute masterpiece it would be Brazil. The plot seems so simple: a bureaucrat, in a retro-future world, tries to correct an administrative error, and becomes an enemy of the state. Yet Gilliam's style prevents this more being a simple tale of the little man against the State, as we follow Sam Lowry's journey through a bizarre, Kafta-esque world. All Sam wants to do is fly away and spend eternity with the woman of his dreams - when he meets her on his travels, things get even more complicated.
