Brazil    (Continued)

At times hard to stomach, the movie nonetheless is a treat for the eye, the mind, and at brief, sparkling moments, the heart, as Sam Lowry (Jonathan Pryce) falls through a succession of blackly humorous horrors, stretching from the mundane reality of his dead-end job to the heartwrenching moments with the sweetheart of his dreams.

But through all the horror, the stupidity, ignorance, and cruel indifference of its characters, it remains a comedy, and viewers who stay mostly un-traumatized will find themselves giggling one moment, sobbing, moaning the next, and then falling into a fit of hysterics.

Great job Rebekah! I REALLY want to see that movie mainly because I LOVE dystopian books (I read all 3 of The Hunger Games books and am currently on the second Divergent book, Insurgent), but I can see from your review that it looks really weird and bizarre. Plus, I don't think my parents will let me watch an R-rated movie anyway.
