Added DiffLines:

** In some senses also an inversion: much of the dystopia in fact ''arises'' from how inefficient, error prone and incompetant the system is.


Added DiffLines:

* OneNationUnderCopyright: Not always appreciated by audiences due to the VastBureaucracy and gross inefficiency of the system, but Central Services behaves both as totalitarian government and corporate monopoly, which is why the likes of Tuttle are the enemy- he's the competition.

* CreatorCameo:
** Co-writer Charles [=McKeown=] plays Harvey Lime.
** The hands seen manipulating Tuttle's tools belonged to Creator/TerryGilliam, not Creator/RobertDeNiro. He's also the smoker in the Shangri-La tower who bumps into Sam.

* PosterGalleryBedroom: Sam's has posters of movie stars on his bedroom walls.
