Soundtrack Week: Brazil

I have somewhat randomly chosen seven soundtracks from the shelf for a perusal. A few of them haven't been listened to for years, but some soundtracks don't need to be played often because through the decades they become part of our DNA. Composer Michael Kamen's wonderful score for Terry Gilliam's 1985 film 'Brazil' falls into that category. There was a time in my late teens I probably would have said this dystopian tale was my favorite film. It's funny, dark, weird, brilliant and in some ways not too terribly far off from what the world has become. Well, except for the ducts.
