     In this visually riveting, mentally stimulating dystopian masterpiece, bureaucrat Sam Lowry (Jonathan Pryce) finds himself tangled in a complex web of deceit in which a series of terrorist bombings are falsely blamed on an innocent citizen rather than the actual terrorist (played by the brilliant Robert De Niro). In this futuristic, totalitarian society, Sam quickly goes from being a loyal citizen of his country to being deemed an enemy of the state. Channeling influences like George Orwell and Kurt Vonnegut, famed director Terry Gilliam (Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas) creates a frightening vision of a world gone wrong in an eerily realistic fashion that has been hailed as one of the best films of the 1980s.
