Like a lot of teenagers, I was obsessed with dystopian fiction ("I live a life filled with plenty, but I must constantly consume media where it is taken away!") and FAHRENHEIT 451 was always my favourite one: Short, punchy and about... *gasp* destroying books!
Also, there were Robot Dogs.
I saw this movie back during those teenage years and thought it was fine, but couldn't connect with its distinctly 60s style. Today, I love how frozen in time it is, and wouldn't fathom wanting to watch a 'gritty' version (Which I assume the new Michael B. Jordan version is?). All of the big beats are hit, and while Oskar Werner is a stiff protagonist, his opaqueness works within Truffaut's formalist execution. I especially enjoyed the film's finale because it moves beyond the "And then they rode on into the night!" dystopian trope to offer a wee bit of hope.
Sadly, the movie version features no Robot Dogs.
