(1985) Written and directed by Terry Gilliam. Jonathan Pryce, Michael Palin, Robert De Niro. (132 min.) R
A tiny bureaucratic cog in a bleak, clanking steampunk dystopia, Sam Lowry is a hero only in his daydreams. Terry Gilliam’s darkly comic cult film of totalitarianism and terrorism has never been more topical than in this classic of cautionary tales ranked with the likes of Orwell and Huxley.
“There is not a more daft, more original or haunting vision to be seen on American movie screens this year ... A terrific movie has escaped the asylum without a lobotomy” (Time).
