Brazil

"It's only a state of mind."

Brazil is a Terry Gilliam dystopic black comedy film that reflects the melancholy, dreamlike quality of a famous Brazilian song that’s been translated into English. The film parodies the mostly dysfunctional bureaucratic world we live in and takes us to a post-apocalyptic world in the future yet with our present day attitudes in mind.

Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • The character of Harry Tuttle is most likely named for a character in the first season of M*A*S*H, in which Hawkeye and Trapper "invent" an officer - Captain Tuttle so that they can funnel his salary to an orphanage as well as blame things on. When they are creating his personnel file, they list his father as Harry Tuttle.
  • Jack Purvis, a regular in the films of Terry Gilliam appears as "Dr. Chapman", a reference to fellow Python Graham Chapman, who had a medical degree.
  • Body count: 25
  • Jonathan Pryce's role as Sam was written years earlier with him in mind. The character was originally designed to be in his mid-twenties (Pryce was only about 30 when Gilliam was developing the script), but after many years in limbo, Gilliam changed the character's age to mid-to-late thirties so that then-37-year-old Pryce could still play the role.
