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.
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.
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.
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!!!
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. Not your best job ever, but well done Criterion

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!
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.
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...
