An effective adoption anchored by an underrated performance from John Hurt. Great electronic soundtrack. Prepare to feel depressed though.
One of my favourite books of all time, film does it justice
Great film adaptation of a classic novel that went the extra mile with sets, costumes, actors to make you think big brother is watching you
Classic dystopian sci-fi movie, worth watching
A classic for a reason. The message is crucial and the style distinct. Unfortunately I found the book more interesting and it dragged a bit.
Couldn’t have asked for more from this adaptation.
Came for dystopia, stayed for the soundtrack.
Slow and dark. Quite psychological. Makes you think
An alright adaption from an astounding novel.
