    his name was similar to Khalid al-Masri, strongly suspected as a terrorist...
    Harry Buttle gets arrested and tortured to death by a government torturer in a pig mask because of a typo.  His name was similar to that of a wanted terrorist, Harry Tuttle.  

    It's all much funnier than it sounds, when it's produced by Terry Gilliam.  I guess Gilliam was prescient.

      Gilliam was brilliant.  For some reason that film gets under-rated but I always put it on my top 10. Might have something to do with the resemblance to reality in my own formative years.

      Didn't see it until the early 00's but it is a classic.
