"My mothers away for Christmas. She's spending it with plastic surgeons."
There was this moment where I glanced away from the screen, but in the corner of my eye I noticed men in hazmat suits playing volleyball in a radioactive powerplant. I had to rewind the film to make sure I had actually witnessed this. Sure enough, this golden little moment really existed. Now I can't tell you the main character names or what happened in the plot because it's not what I took from this experience. Instead, it's just little moments that really make up this satirical, often ironic, take on George Orwell's '1984.' The sheer amount of imagination, both satrical and relevant, is astonishing. If you look away for a second you're missing a joke or idea. Now don't go thinking this is all fun and games. Anyone who's read '1984' will understand the sense of dread that accompanies visions of the not-so-bright future. Militarized police, terrorists, bureaucracy as the death of humanity, it's all relevant and happening now in 2020. This vision of Brazil doesn't always seem like a fantasy but a terrible mirror of reality.
