BRAZIL is more than a classic black comedy, it’s perhaps the darkest Christmas story ever told. After opening your gifts and grabbing some Chinese food, drop by the Roxie for Terry Gilliam’s prescient, frightening, and incredibly funny masterpiece – the uncut European theatrical version – on 35mm.
When a literal bug in the system sends the anti-terrorism division of the government after a shoe repairman instead of the radical they were looking for, bureaucrat Sam Lowry finds the woman of his dreams while attempting to unravel the scandal – only to find that things aren’t quite what they seemed.
A masterpiece of scriptwriting, production design, and some of the most surreal and wonderful scenes ever envisioned, BRAZIL seems more relevant year after year, as the satirical jabs at technology, the war on terrorism, and, well, Christmas ring increasingly true.
