"We're all in this together" - Harry Tuttle
Sunday, July 10, 2005

I just re-watched the movie Brazil for the first time in about ten years. It is an incredible movie and it holds up so well that you would never guess that it was 20-years old!

I remember when I first saw it in 1985 at a little townie theatre in Springfield, MA. The ticket seller warned me about the movie and tried to talk me out of going! Apparently other unhappy Springfieldites had complained! I was not deterred, however, and loved the movie then and love it now. The absurdity, the banality, the mix of past and future, of the normal, the bizarre and the bizarre parading as normal are so fine, so tuned.

If you haven't seen it, I'd recommend getting out to see it now, today! If you have but not recently, then I'd allow you to wait until tomorrow <smile>. It is pure genius.
