To jeden z najlepszych filmow jakie kiedykolwiek widzialam. I nie mowie o formie czy o czesci rozrywkowej, ale o tym co on mowi.
Sam pracuje dla Ministerstwa Informacji, ogromnej biurokracji, I ucieka w fantazje przed przyszlosciowa-rzeczywistoscia. Pewnego dnia spotyka dziewczyne z jego snu I dla milosci do niej rezygnuje z bezpieczenstwa.
Jest tam duzo podobienstw do 1984 Orwella, ale wydaje sie to byc krytycyzm faszyzmu zamiast marksismu. Mimo ze film rozpoczyna sie napisem “gdzies w dwudziestym wieku” (film byl zrobiony w 1986) sceneria jest bardzo przyszlosciowa I razem z tytulem daja wrazenie ze moze sie to dziac gdziekolwiek i kiedykolwiek. Gilliam komentuje, ze jego krytycyzm jest skierowany przeciwko amerykanskiej dystopii komercyjnej, ktora “bombarduje ciebie marzeniami I pozbawia ciebie twoich wlasnych”
Telewizja zrzuca wine za przemoc kultury na niewidocznych terrorystow – brzmi znajomo?
That’s one of the best films I’ve ever seen. And I’m not talking about the form or entertaining part, the great is what it says.
Sam works for Ministry of Information, a huge bureaucracy, and uses fantasy to escaped future-reality. One day he meets a girl from his dreams and undermines his safety for love of her.
There are many similarities with Orwell’s 1984, yet it seems to be a criticism of fascism instead of Marxism. Although the opening says ‘somewhere in the 20th century’ (film was made in 1986) the setting is very futuristic which together with the title gives an impression as if it was to happen everywhere and anytime. Gillian comments that his criticism is aimed at American commercial dystopia, which “bombards you with dreams and deprives you of your own"
Television still blames the violence of the culture on unseen terrorists – sounds familiar?
