    Does this build-up of Brazil posts mean that Criterion is yet again making me buy a Blu-ray when I've already got the DVD? *grumbles as he gets out his credit card* Anyway: to my mind Brazil is still the best Terry Gilliam film, mainly because the style fits the content so well. In most of Gilliam's films there are moments when I think that a somewhat more disciplined, less "everything including the six-legged kitchen sink played by a troupe of midgets" approach would have served the material better. I very quickly get Gilliam fatigue - but either he's more in control of his palette in Brazil or the film carries the weight of the (over-)exuberant formal inventiveness.
