The Taste Buds discuss 1985’s most bizarre movie, Brazil!

Brazil is a quirky little movie that didn’t do great in its own time but has risen to cult status. Might it be more than a little film that punches above its weight? We would dare to say that it is, in actuality, a cinematic classic the likes of which we on this show have not seen. Brazil is an astounding masterpiece that encompasses the banality and brutality of modern life. Through the movie, we laugh at the thing which has trapped us, yet Brazil ultimately offers the viewer no escape beyond madness. Also, there is a samurai as well as a protracted gun battle.
