Interminable Palaver says, "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 has released, and it is the darkest turn yet for the Potter series. Harry has gone into hiding and can no longer make regular trips to the barbershop. It’s hell, and I don’t think I am spoiling anything when I say that the film does not end on a high note.
During Harry’s shaggy haired adventure, he and his pals have to make a rather dangerous trip to the recently overtaken Ministry of Magic. The Ministry is full of terrifying ladies in pink dresses, floating prison guards who bear more than a passing resemblance to common characterizations of Death, and references to the classic 1985 Terry Gilliam film, Brazil. It may have been entirely coincidental, but it seems that the Harry Potter director, David Yates, has made some intentional nods to Gilliam’s movie."
