Summary: Simply one of the best films ever.
Recently I saw this again, on DVD. The first time I saw it, it was on VHS, with a 19" TV. So clearly, the DVD provides more detail to be seen, as well as better sound quality. But Brazil, both 20 years ago and today, remains one my all-time favorite films. The big-bureaucracy, heartless government, anti-terrorism theme runs through the film with eeries echoes in today's society. Whether you watch the "happy ending" version or the director's cut, the meat of the film is the important thing; controlled chaos which is Gilliam's specialty.
