Brazil

Ever heard the term “non-representational art”? If not, watch this movie for the definition. It’s a futuristic nightmare comedy, a dystopian satire. It was so bizarre in fact, director Terry Gilliam almost never saw its release. As the story goes, Universal Pictures felt the movie was too weird and delayed its release. So, Gilliam screened it for the LA Film Critics Assoc. They named it Picture Of The Year for 1985 and basically embarrassed Universal into releasing it.
