Half a dream and half a nightmare
4 April 2010 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

This is the featurette found on the DVD of Brazil, and no, it does not truly answer the question that its title poses. Partially because this is promotional and explaining it to those who have not yet watched it would be rather troubling, and also for the reason that they want us to ponder it, ourselves. This consists of interviews, clips of the film and behind the scenes footage, including material of the cut snooker ball eye sequence that you may or may not have heard of. The leads get to try to answer what on Earth the name of the film means, and talk about their characters, why they specifically were cast and such. Palin is utterly hilarious, if not necessarily providing many clues about the piece(other than "it's a Viking musical"). The three writers talk about the script(one-on-one, not to each other in this), and that makes for one of the most entertaining bits of this. It's interesting and informational enough from start to finish, and it's edited well. Finally, I would guess the reason this has no mention of the battle over the release with Sid Sheinberg was either because it had not occurred yet, or that they did not cover it in hopes that the otherwise fairly public(because of Terry... and that's what won it for him, gotta love him) conflict would be forgotten and not scare people away from the cinema. I recommend this to everyone who liked the movie. 7/10
