Terry Gilliam’s mind-blowing sci-fi classic, starring Jonathan Pryce.
Dir Terry Gilliam
With Jonathan Pryce, Robert De Niro, Bob Hoskins, Ian Holm
Riffing to dazzlingly inventive effect on themes from Orwell’s 1984, Gilliam imagines a totalitarian dystopia predicated on oppression and lies; Pryce’s Ministry of Information worker dreams of freedom, love and greater things, but... The topography he inhabits is a marvellously persuasive mix of drab 1940s reality and futuristic fantasy; the buildings tend towards the labyrinthine, monumental and imprisoning.
