As made very clear by my grade, I did not like Brazil. The cast, which includes big names like Jonathan Pryce, Bob Hoskins, Robert De Niro, Ian Holm, and Jim Broadbent, likely performed as directed by Terry Gilliam, but this level of weirdness and camp is bound to be a huge turn off for me.
The Bottom Line: Once again, this movie has many rabid fans that swear by its greatness, and that will likely accuse me of heresy, so perhaps I just didn't "get" it, but I found it ridiculous, boring, and even irritating. Watch out, perilous inanities ahead.
