Terry Gilliam's BRAZIL Coming To Blu-ray December 5th

20th Century Fox are re-releasing Brazil on Blu-ray from December the 5th, in a format which will hopefully do justice to one of Britain's most appreciated 'cult' films.

Terry Gilliam is as idiosyncratic a film-maker as they come. Unfortunately, we've seen very little of him in the past decade or so, and when he has surfaced it has tended to be with films that don't reach the dizzy heights of past glories. Therefore it's a pleasure to see one of his greatest films given the shiny Blu-ray treatment its visionary design deserves. Brazil is a futuristic, bureaucratic satire full of the dread and bewilderment of Orwell's nightmarish totalitarian vision of Britain, yet with plenty of black comedy thrown in to keep the mood (relatively) light. Gilliam is famed, and rightly so, for the dream-like fantasy vistas he creates and Brazil is no exception, with light, airily shot dream sequences aligned with the miserable interior of the Ministry of Information, ensuring a visual feast. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EvBF3Lxla98 20th Century Fox are re-releasing Brazil on Blu-ray from December the 5th, in a format which will hopefully do justice to one of Britain's most appreciated 'cult' films. It doesn't come with a huge amount of extras, with only a 30 minute documentary to accompany the feature, but it's still a release sure to please fantasy fans and film buffs around the country. We'll be reviewing the release in full detail in the coming weeks. Brazil can be pre-ordered for the bargain price of £11.19 on Amazon now.
