Brazil (Terry Gilliam – 1985) A-

Fantastic and not at all dated.I like the fact that the movie does not make Sam Lowry to be this idealist who wants to rebel against an unjust system and what have you. He’s just a guy who wants to meet a chick he saw once. He simply lives and accepts the totalitarian world he inhabits and has no apparent desire to change it. He even seems to accept that he has to share a desk with another office worker through the wall that divides their cubes! The movie also has very funny classic small roles by Robert De Niro and Bob Hoskins.
