    Auteur Theory: How a Stage Director reads Terry Gilliam’s, Brazil (1985) Prof. Timothy X. Troy

    Combining a careful read of Gilliam’s mise-en-scene, Troy gathers fragments of Gilliam’s biography with his contributions to Monty Python’s Flying Circus to explore how auteur theory helps explain Brazil’s unique visual vocabulary, its playful sensibility, and prescient impression of an Anglo-American dystopia.
