    I've long believed that the best possible version of Brazil would be the European cut with the addition of the line "My God, it works" (which was clipped off the end of the plastic surgery scene but later reinstated while Gilliam was preparing the Universal cut) and the ending with the clouds. That would be perfection.

      I like the final cut the best, but I always wondered why the "My God, it works" line never made it into the final cut. That line is very funny.

      Doesn't the Universal cut have the clouds in the ending? I know they are there on my old VHS copy, not sure about the Universal Blu-ray. I have always thought the Universal cut superior to the Criterion director's cut...

    When did Criterion do a special edition of Munchausen?

    Criterion did a laserdisc release of Munchausen. The current DVD release has a new commentary and extras; none of the Criterion material was ported.
