15. Brazil (1985 – Terry Gilliam)
This picturesque, dark, and visually-stunning movie is the third non-comedic work of iconic cartoonist Terry Gilliam. Brazil is a rebellious diatribe against the government and bureaucracy. The angles, colors, portraits, and scenery of this movie are so unique they have endured through the years as one of the few nightmarish movies that amazed both fans and critics alike. Michael Palin’s performance as one of the most incredible villains of movie history remains unrivaled in this genre.
