Terry Gilliam Storbritannia, 1985

Frankly, Mr. Shankly's rating of the film Brazil

Brilliant. A dystopia satire by Mr. Gilliam couldn't go wrong. Its absurdity, criticism and visuals (like Blade Runner, a delicious mix of noir and futuristic films) were such a please to see. Did anyone else notice the reference to the Odessa steps sequence from Eisenstein’s Battleship Potemkin? I found it better and less obvious than the one in de Palma's Untouchables.
