    We just finished up our latest personal project, and think that there will be some people here that will nail this one right away. No hints yet.

    Figured out in one post (within minutes no less, we're impressed.)
    As worn by Jack, the interrogator/torturer just prior to the assumed labotomy.

    We're also doing a 'rescue' version of this mask, complete with forehead bullet hole.
    Anyone interested, please contact me at scott@kropserkel.com , thanks again.

    Um...a pair of nutcrackers are very disturbing to see alongside this mask.

    Looks fantastic.

    It's Alive? Island of the Alive? I think I'm stumped already. Nice piece, though.

    ahhhhh.... Brazil one of my absolute favourite flicks. Terry Gilliam at his best. Michael Palin wearing that mask in the huge industrial 'torture chamber' is sooooo creepy.

    You've just reminded me that it's time to watch this again - thanks.

    Very cool... I love Brazil. Unfortunately I never watched the other 2 DVDs in the Criterion Collection box set. Did you guess the dimensions, or did you have some sort of reference?

    I agree with Wampa -- the finish work on that is awesome.

    The mask looks fantastic. You've really done an exceptional job on this one.

    The assortment of tools is great too. Are those accurate to the movie or simply items you had available for the photo? And is that a Jengo Fett blaster in the second photo? That one wouldn't be movie accurate.

    Keep up the great work. I'm really looking forward to seeing the "rescue" piece.

    Ted.

    I love Brasil, and that mask--in context--is even more terrifying.

    Dig the corckscrew.

    Green Days "basket case" video.

    I'm late as usual but as a musical interlude...

    Brazil... where hearts were entertaining june
    We stood beneath an amber moon
    And softly murmured "someday soon"
    We kissed and clung together

    Then, tomorrow was another day
    The morning found me miles away
    With still a million things to say
    Now, when twilight dims the sky above
    Recalling thrills of our love
    There's one thing I'm certain of
    Return I will to old Brazil
