Runtime: 2 hours, 23 minutes
Low-level bureaucrat Sam Lowry escapes the monotony of his day-to-day life through a recurring daydream of himself as a virtuous hero saving a beautiful damsel. Investigating a case that led to the wrongful arrest and eventual death of an innocent man instead of wanted terrorist Harry Tuttle, he meets the woman from his daydream, and in trying to help her gets caught in a web of mistaken identities, mindless bureaucracy and lies.

After watching the film though, Im still stuck in a whirlwind of wonder, continuously curious about the film and its themes and take on a future society, left standing as a faintly frustrated individual not knowing whether to be annoyed or amazed by it all.
On occasion, I tend to watch a film that gets so overwhelming that I find it a challenge to try and organise my thoughts and opinions on it into a coherent review. [i]Brazil[/i] is such a film..
