18. "... huge staffs of observers and informants insuring that no nasty words,..."
Edited on Mon Nov-28-11 08:51 AM by mahatmakanejeeves
I stumbled upon a yard sale on Saturday. In a box of pre-recorded VHS tapes for sale, I found a copy of a wonderful movie that I hadn't seen in years. I sat down and watched it again Saturday night.

Brazil

In the movie, the staff of observers and informants is called the Ministry of Information.

I highly recommend it, if you haven't seen it.

ETA: the version I bought is, according to the box, 2 hours and 11 minutes long; you'll also see this version described as 132 minutes long. It is not the 142-minute long version.

I once saw the version with the happy ending on TV. That ending changes the whole point of the movie.
