    Two movies allowed? I will try.

    Holy Motors (2012)


    Holy Motors is a 2012 Franco-German fantasy drama film written and directed by Leos Carax, starring Denis Lavant and Édith Scob; with Kylie Minogue and Eva Mendes in supporting roles.

    I will not attempt to describe this movie since there is only one scene in here that I can possibly talk about in sensible terms, and I'm not going to ruin it for anyone. Also, its French, so expect some nsfw.

    Brazil (1985)

    nobody say the words World Cup


    Brazil is a 1985 British film directed by Terry Gilliam and written by Gilliam, Charles McKeown, and Tom Stoppard. British National Cinema by Sarah Street describes the film as a "fantasy/satire on bureaucratic society" while John Scalzi's Rough Guide to Sci-Fi Movies describes it as a "dystopian satire". The film stars Jonathan Pryce and features Robert De Niro, Kim Greist, Michael Palin, Katherine Helmond, Bob Hoskins, and Ian Holm.

    The film centres on Sam Lowry, a man trying to find a woman who appears in his dreams while he is working in a mind-numbing job and living a life in a small apartment, set in a consumer-driven dystopian world in which there is an over-reliance on poorly maintained (and rather whimsical) machines. Brazil's bureaucratic, totalitarian government is reminiscent of the government depicted in George Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-Four, except that it has a buffoonish, slapstick quality and lacks a Big Brother figure.


    And this poster too, because they're both awesome and I can't decide.


    I didn't write in Blade-Runner because I guess someone will. Also, I have to post other movies so keep 'em coming !!
