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.
An effective adoption anchored by an underrated performance from John Hurt. Great electronic soundtrack. Prepare to feel depressed though.
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
Couldn’t have asked for more from this adaptation.
Slow and dark. Quite psychological. Makes you think
Came for dystopia, stayed for the soundtrack.
An alright adaption from an astounding novel.
Borderline flawless adaption with incredible performances from the entire cast.
You need to read the book. Then see the movie. Written in the 1940s, it's no longer fiction .
Based on one of the most prescient and dread-filled books of all time, and a near perfect adaptation. Watch Brazil instead.
This had catched well the misery athmosphere of Soviet Union society
This movie paints a picture of what an authoritarian dystopia looks like. What having too much of one political power would look like.
This film is best appreciated after having read the book first
A lot is lost in translation, so it doesn’t have quite the impact as it’s source material. But it uses the tools of cinema well.
It's not as good as the book, but it's an important movie for reflecting in what kind of society are we leaving.
Very good adaptation of one of the greatest novels of all time
Great adaptation of the book. John Hurt is pefect as Winston. I recommend reading the book first as it is more elaborate.
Great adaptation. We need to see high quality adaptations like this today too.
Very Similar With the book. And can only truly be appreciated if you read the books.
Not a bad film, quite well executed, but it's just not as incisive as the book
