[A] darkly funny and truly visionary retro-futurist fantasy.
Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal
Brazil is a stinging, Strangelovian satire of the power of the bureaucracy in an Orwellian landscape.
James Berardinelli, ReelViews
Pervasive ductwork and bright neon signage define Terry Gilliam's dystopian masterpiece. ... "Brazil" is a transcendent and hilarious satire of government bureaucracy and corporate greed. Speaking to generations far outside of its humble 1980's beginnings, "Brazil" has made an indelible mark on the sic-fi landscape, and carries with it a strong message, as relevant today as it ever was. 9.0 of 10
Jordan Brooks, The Focus Pull
The cold, bureaucratic nightmare of Brazil’s unnamed dystopian metropolis would have made Kafka proud. The world shows all the hallmarks of your classic dystopia: an endless sea of gray skyscrapers overseen by autocratic government agencies with scary names like Information Retrieval and the Department of Records; beaten-down office drones dealing with cumbersome technology somewhere between a typewriter and a Commodore 64; and tiny bullet-shaped cars that confine as much as transport. Gilliam’s stifling Expressionism hammers home a world overly obsessed with the convenience of technology to the point where agency is handed over to it.
