RE: Brazil. Free Movie
I never learned that Brazil had 10 times as many African slaves as the US. Inhumane treatment and deplorable conditions.
A bit disappointing at first, I was expecting Sam Lowry to battle the inhuman machine police state in his dreams, while finding his true love.
But yours was a good video, an important history lesson trumps entertainment, especially a movie I've seen before.

Most people are totally unaware of this. For this reason I posted the vid.

Unfortunately, no one has seen Sam Lowry here.

Why was that movie called Brazil? Apparently, gilliam says it's because the police in his movie behave just like Brazilian police.

Living here, in the post dictatorship, I can believe that!

Not positive of why it was the Gilliam flick was called Brazil. Somehow fitting though imo. Exotic faraway land of extravagant contradictions that are unnoticed by its denizens?
It was a real eye-opener of a movie, saw it when I was 20 in the military. The imaginative dream/reality mixture and unsettling imagery of a nightmare Orwelian zombie utopia really riveted me.
Definitely one of my top ten movies of all time.

Well we aren't quite like the slaves in the video, but it is no worker's paradise either.
So we work 8 to 10 hours a day to earn enough for food, shelter, and clothing. Have little to no choice of our work days, work hours, maybe have healthcare benefits (but pay 1/4 of our earnings and have $500 deductibles), get a couple days off per year, have no other real alternatives because of the economy, pay a third of our earnings to taxes, come home exhausted and work some more at home, and would be homeless and starving if we didn't work this hard, how far exactly are we from slavery?
