Nineteen Eighty-Four

Nineteen Eighty-Four ★★★★

I am one of the few people on earth who has not read the novel, and while I do think some things in the movie were rushed, particularly the forbidden relationship, I think I got most of the gist.

I found the whole film chilling, the banality of evil, the total amount of effort exercised to keep your society under complete control. The somewhat cheerful man that comes to "realize" he is a "subversive element", just wow.

My God's kitten liked these reviews
