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 samurai warrior's suit was covered in electronic components such as resistors and volume knobs. In an early version of the film, all of the samurai warrior's scenes were in one block.
  • The dream scenes were initially meant to form just one long sequence in the middle of the film, but technical difficulties made this impossible. The most important part of the dream sequence was intended to be a scene where Sam flies over a field of eyes, which then start slowly moving to follow his descent on a pillar. The eyes were made of snooker balls with false irises added; the eye symbol is also seen in other Terry Gilliam films including Twelve Monkeys. The decision was later made to split the remaining dream scenes to fill the "empty" spaces between chapters.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): In the dream sequence when Sam is battling the typewriter warrior, the warrior slams his spear into the ground, leaving over half the spear head exposed. However, a few shots later, when Sam retrieves the spear, the head is completely buried in the ground.
  • Movie Goof (revealing mistake): Before Sam and his mother walk into the restaurant, the guards are looking at a package through an X-Ray. When Sam's mother puts he purse down, it's also X-Rayed. The two packages show the same image on the X-Ray (this may have been deliberate, to show that nothing in society works).
