A bureaucrat, in a retro-future world, tries to correct an administrative error and becomes an enemy of the state. This dark comedy set in an Orwellian future follows a distracted civil servant who, through bureaucratic errors, is mistaken as an enemy of the state. Hailed for its groundbreaking visual effects and satirical story, Brazil is one of the most highly regarded films of all time and a bona fide cult classic. Jonathan Pryce stars as Sam Lowry, a grey-suited government clerk who finds his life turned upside-down when he gets involved in a case of mistaken identity. Categorized as an enemy of the state, Sam is propelled into a surreal romance with the woman of his dreams, who may also be a terrorist. Co-starring Robert De Niro and Michael Palin, director Terry Gilliam’s modern masterpiece is a pitch-black comedic look at a “perfect” future where technology reigns supreme.
