Happy Tax Day!

(1985) dir Terry Gilliam w/Jonathan Pryce, Kim Greist, Robert De Niro, Katherine Helmond, Ian Holm, Bob Hoskins, Michael Palin [142 min; DCP]
Tired of doing all that paperwork for your taxes? Well at least you’re not Sam Lowry! In Terry Gilliam’s dystopian sci-fi classic, Sam (Pryce) begins as an aspiring bureaucrat but mistakenly becomes labeled an enemy of the state when he tries to help an innocent man targeted because of a typo.

“Monty Python’s Metropolis. It’s a glimmering hunk of fractured brilliance riddled with Orwellian paranoia encased in a production design seemingly pieced together from the shared dreams of Franz Kakfa and Salvador Dali, and shot from cruelly low angles… The ridiculous filling in the Twinkies of your dreams.” – Wesley Morris, San Francisco Examiner
