Paul and Heather escape the tedium of their humdrum lives by reviewing two films about daydreaming office drones. First: THE SECRET LIFE OF WALTER MITTY, Ben Stiller's 2013 megabudgeted expansion of James Thurber's classic story, in which a meek LIFE magazine employee seizes what may be his last, best opportunity for real-life adventure; then, BRAZIL, Terry Gilliam's bleak 1985 science fiction comedy starring Jonathan Pryce as a bureaucrat in a dystopian future Britain whose pursuit of his dream girl makes him an enemy of the state. Sean Penn as a rebellious photojournalist, or Robert De Niro as a rebellious home repairman: which will prevail?
Plus: our quick takes on the web series HIGH MAINTENANCE, PROXY, IN YOUR EYES, and the TV series FARGO.
