BRAZIL / THINGS TO COME
35 mm!

BRAZIL
1985, Universal, 142 min, UK, Dir: Terry Gilliam

Director Terry Gilliam’s groundbreaking science fiction satire is an anachronistic masterpiece. Winner of the Los Angeles Film Critics Award for Best Picture, Best Director and Best Screenplay (Gilliam, Charles McKeown and theater legend Tom Stoppard). Inspired by George Orwell’s 1984 and Fritz Lang’s METROPOLIS, this darkest of comedies pits Everyman Jonathan Pryce against a world of crushing conformity, pursuing elusive love Kim Greist. Featuring fellow Python Michael Palin as upwardly mobile Jack Lint and Robert De Niro as an outlaw heating engineer, its jaw-dropping retro-futuristic design helped give birth to the steampunk genre.


THINGS TO COME
1936, Janus Films, 100 min, UK, Dir: William Cameron Menzies

Director William Cameron Menzies brings to the screen H.G. Wells’ apocalyptic sci-fi novel, with input from Wells himself. A world war that begins in 1940 lasts until 1966, when a plague hits the planet and destroys half the population. Isolated primitive communities struggle through, but it soon becomes apparent a pocket of humanity has not only survived war and disease but has made enormous strides in technological achievement and design. With Raymond Massey and Ralph Richardson.
