I remember the terrorist thing was parodied, but it's been so long. Di Niro was in it, played the part of a terrorist. Been a long time, any movie experts out there that might be able to draw some pictures for us?

I loved that movie! DeNiro wasn't a terrorist, he was fighting against the police state. Kind of a commando type of thing. "Go ahead, big boy. I won't look at your willie"

I thought that was Kevin Kline playing Harry Tuttle, renegade heating engineer...

You know what. you're probably right--it's been so long, I may have assumed it was Di niro.

DeNiro was a covert heating repair technician. From the state's point of view, that made him a terrorist. Doing a good job and helping people isn't the point anymore, it's about being properly licensed and filling out the right paperwork. I liked the diatribe in Way of the Gun - "It's not what you say anymore, is it? It's how you say it."

http://www.faqs.org/faqs/movies/brazil-faq/ BRAZIL is a film rich in depth -- the plot does not focus on just one subject, but instead contains many different themes which weave together. The film follows the character of Sam Lowry, a clerk in the records department of a huge government bureaucracy, the Ministry of Information. Sam's perception of the world alternates between being trapped as a mere "cog in the machine" in a grim world of paperwork, and escaping from his grim existence by becoming a hero in his own elaborate dreams. His life and these dreams begin to merge together...his dreams become more realized as his life tears apart. Eventually, the government imprisons him, finding him guilty of none other than "wasting the Ministry's time and paper" after Sam embarks on a messy pursuit of the girl he sees in both his dreams and in real life -- who was unrightly wanted by the Ministry as a suspected terrorist

BRAZIL is a film which rolls up many of the problems of the century into one big plot: industrialization, terrorism, government control and bureaucracy (from both capitalist and socialized countries), technology gone wrong, inept repair people, plastic surgery, love, and even modern filmmaking. Especially love.

only a bazillion times. gillian is a visionary. was the first thing i thought of too. people ignoring the damage and casualties, because it was so common. living in denial. hope it doesn't come to that.
