Top 10 Cult Films

Brazil is a dark comedy directed by Terry Gilliam



Brazil (1985)
Set in a world that seems part-future, part-past, anonymous government worker (Jonathan Pryce) sets out to correct a bureaucratic mistake that results in fatal consequences, literally finds the woman of his dreams and ends up an enemy of the state. There's a lot to laugh at, but the darkness of this 1984-like film definitely outweighs the comedy. As are most Terry Gilliam films, this is a visual treat, but he also had noted playwright Tom Stoppard helping him with the script, as well as great performances from Pryce, fellow Monty Python alum Michael Palin, and Robert DeNiro. The title refers to the song, not the country.
