My mother told me that I would think that Brazil by Terry Gilliam made no sense whatsoever and that I would find it to be really surreal.


I understood it perfectly, and didn't find it so surreal at all. :/

It's about work, the futility thereof, and how when you try to break out it's impossible: there's always something trying to drag you back and make you suffer for your attempts to escape. The only way out is death or insanity.

It's a view I've clung tightly to for years.
