Director's Cut Only!!

  • Excerpt: A funny, yet ultimately dark satire on a whole host of things from reliance on technology, government and corporate bureacracy and the culture of fear, what is amazing about Brazil is just how relevant it continues to be. Indeed, as well as the overt elements of the plot, it's the minutae of the film that still astounds ( perhaps our current UK government might want to take a look before declaring that we are all in this together ).

Great Dystopian Comedy

BleachD, blu-ray.com

  • Excerpt: Great, extremely inventive movie that has sets worth the admission price alone, wacky with a dark side. Includes the butchered "Love Conquers All" version and some great special features. The video quality is great but not perfect and though the audio track serves well, it makes me wish it had a 5.1 cut. Overall worth it if you're a fan of the movie like me. If you haven't seen it then rent it as it's not for everyone.

  • Excerpt: Not my favorite Terry Gilliam movie but good. This Criterion is good with a bunch of extras. Like 2 documentaries, commentary, and the original cut by the studio. If you are a big fan of this movie buy it.

Two out of 3 cuts.

  • Excerpt: Alas, I'll have to hold on to my Criterion DVD boxed set of "Brazil," if for no other reason than it contains the American cut of the film. That's the cut I saw in theaters and that's the cut I prefer. How and why Criterion chose not to offer this version via seamless branching baffles me. Having said that, "Brazil" looks and sounds great. Gilliam's commentary track is one of the best ever recorded.

Don't bother

  • Excerpt: I love the movie, but Criterion really didn't do such a great job. Compared to quality of what was done with even an older movie like JAWS it is pathetic. The sound is horrendous DTS 2.0!!! for SRP: $49.95 Criterion Store price: $39.96!!!

Nice Release of Brazil

  • Excerpt: Some parts of the film look spectacular-brand new in fact- but other parts of the film stock look a bit run down. I definitely can see how this film would benefit from a newly struck master. For now, however, its much, much better than the DVD.

BLU RAY is the 132 minute Original U.S. Theatrical Cut FINALLY!!!!

moviemaker, blu-ray.com
30 April 2012
  • Excerpt: While others have reviewed the AQ/PQ of the Blu-ray (seetoddly6666 above for one I completely agree with) I will instead focus on this particular cut of Brazil found on this Blu-ray release. Here we go! On this Blu-ray for the first time ever we get the ORIGINAL 132 minute version of the film as was shown in U.S. theaters. (Note: This is NOT the "Love Conquers All" Sheinberg/TV Edit.

Wait for the Inevitable Criterion

indiansbsa, blu-ray.com
17 July 2011
  • Excerpt: The Brazil Criterion is one of the tentpoles of the collection and totally should be waited for in this case due to the lack of the clearly superior director's cut being released, nor any of the amazing extras. The three stars is for the universal cut not the director's. Anyone doubting the coming of Brazil should just look to Fear and Loathing being released subsequent.

Another Gilliam on blu!

toddly6666, blu-ray.com
11 July 2011
  • Excerpt: The first thing my five-year old said as he watched the beginning of the Brazil blu-ray was, "whoa, it looks like a 3D movie. It's coming right at us!" While I would love to say that he was refering to the video quality, he probably was refering to Gilliam's creative use of camerawork zooming into our eyes. But don't worry, the video quality is an upgrade from the anamorphic DVD versions (Criterion and Brazilian DVDs).
