Moscow Film Society: Brazil

Tuesday, November 28 at 7:00 PM

“Terry Gilliam’s ferociously creative black comedy is filled with wild tonal contrasts, swarming details, and unfettered visual invention — every shot carries a charge of surprise and delight.”
— Chicago Reader
Moscow Film Society presents BRAZIL as part of their Surreal Absurdities series. In the dystopian masterpiece BRAZIL, Jonathan Pryce plays a daydreaming everyman who finds himself caught in the soul-crushing gears of a nightmarish bureaucracy. This cautionary tale by Terry Gilliam, one of the great films of the 1980s, has come to be esteemed alongside antitotalitarian works by the likes of George Orwell, Aldous Huxley, and Kurt Vonnegut Jr. And in terms of set design, cinematography, music, and effects, BRAZIL is a nonstop dazzler. MFS will be screening Terry Gilliam’s director’s cut version of the film.
Rated: R | 2 hr 23 min | Tickets: $8 Adult or Film Pass
