Question: Why is this film called Brazil?
Chosen answer: Because of the reoccurring use of the song "Aquarela do Brasil" by Ary Barroso. The song's common English title is "Brazil". And at the end, when Sam is sitting in the chair, he starts to sing "Brazil".
Question: What is the relevence of the time 8:49pm that appears at the start of the film?
Chosen answer: I don't think the time is particularly relevant, except that its exactness is in stark contrast to the temporal and locational vagueness of the next statement which is "...Somewhere in the 20th century".

Mr. Warrenn: What is this mess? An empty desk is an efficient desk.
When Lowry first arrives at Buttle's flat to return the cheque, he hears a cough and turns to see a man smoking a cigarette, half hidden by a column. When he blows a cloud of smoke it is easy to see that it comes from a tube next to his mouth. He isn't even exhaling at the time.
The "smoking man" at the Shangri-La tower who bumps into Sam is the film's director, Terry Gilliam.
