Dir. Terry Gilliam (1985).
Although the plot's full of holes, this latter-day Orwellian story of a bleak dystopian alternative future has been conceived with such brilliant visual imagination that it hardly matters. In this haunting black comedy, the most audacious fantasy of the 1980s, hero Jonathan Pryce becomes a victim of his own delusions, crushed by a system he had never questioned.
