Weird English Movie Names
Terry Gilliams Brazil is methodical in its imagery and story. Some films will simply throw in random scenes of strangeness to confound you, yet in Brazil they all seem to have a purpose in some form or another. Similar to the world it presents, being to the letter and efficient yet strange and off somehow. Its pretty coherent, especially early on, but slowly dives in to be stranger and stranger as we progress. A wrong man is arrested for being a terrorist due to a bug (literally, a bug) in a the machine that misprinted his name. Eventually this mistake is discovered and our hero, Sam, who is off to investigate. We share his discoveries, his mysteries solved and his journey through the weird and bureaucratic (inefficiently bureaucratic, I might add, which makes for some great dark comedy) world of Brazil.
