These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Ending Fatigue: Terry Gilliam planned on the ending getting bigger and bigger, more and more romantic, and just wilder until it just got painful... and was subverted with a massive Bittersweet Ending. The Love Conquers All version cuts the subversion.
Misaimed Fandom: Brazil is popular among the American Right, which Gilliam himself has said puzzles him. The film includes scathing satire of consumerism and authoritarianism, and one of its working titles was So That's Why the Bourgeoisie Sucks.
Vindicated by History: Initially unable to live up to the hype surrounding it (mostly concerning Gilliam's battle to get the proper version into theaters) and losing money at the box office, Brazil has joined the ranks of Dr. Strangelove and Fargo as one of the most memorable dark comedies of all time.
