  2. Bonnet Michel's rating of the film Nineteen Eighty-Four

  3. Wee Hunk's rating of the film Nineteen Eighty-Four

    I always saw it as a tragic love story. Hurt and Hamilton just want to be free to love each other. It contains one of Mr. Burton's finest and last performances. I always wondered why Ms. Hamilton didn't have an amazing career like Mr. Hurt. Maybe something about the film industry chewing up and spitting out women when they're considered too old? She was amazing. And that soundtrack? I bought the album.

  4. Addy K.'s rating of the film Nineteen Eighty-Four

    Losing your freedom is the scariest thing in life. But even more frightening is to be denied your humanity. In 1984 this means not being allowed to love or think. John Hurt plays Winston, an everyman so fragile that seeing him tortured by stone-faced Richard Burton is sheer terror (good luck shaking off the dread). In its final 30mins, 1984 becomes not only a great movie, but a monument. Watch it with original score.

  8. Thomas Dods's rating of the film Nineteen Eighty-Four

    1984 is my favourite book and has been for a long long time. Despite a committed performance from John Hurt however, this film left me cold. It just can't depict the emotional complexity of the source material nor it's political subtext.

  9. Matthew Catanzano's rating of the film Nineteen Eighty-Four

    An extreme film, extremely bothersome but a worthwhile bother. The storytelling is like no other. The conclusion is both hopeless and hopeful at the same time, this is a work of pure genius. It has a theme of cruelty that is so strong that I nearly had to quit before it was over, but this theme is not excessive in that it is realistic and portrayed for a very good reason.

  12. Joao Domingues's rating of the film Nineteen Eighty-Four

    Poor adaption, its almost as if the dude who wrote it just skimmed trough 2/3 of the book. Acting was okayish

  13. Henrique Amud's rating of the film Nineteen Eighty-Four

    For a two-hour adaptation of the book, it is pretty concise and faithful, with a perfect subdued cast. It doesn't translate all the complex politics and It loses on the maddening/suffocating atmosphere but it still holds a great cinematic ambience held by Deakins cinematography and Muldowney haunting score.

  18. pluviosity's rating of the film Nineteen Eighty-Four

    it's like the original book was turned upside down, shaken hard, until the only thing left was the romantic drama behind. If it's not for the cast, this would be a disappointment.

  19. MIRZBOW's rating of the film Nineteen Eighty-Four

    i think Indonesia would be like this with the UU-IT stuff.

  20. Roy Deckard's rating of the film Nineteen Eighty-Four

    I don't think cinema can capture the essence of the classic novel, the agony, the madness, the soul-crashing revelation, the beautifully devastating truth. But still, the movie was great.

    Whom do you love, Mr. Smith?

  24. smndvdcl's rating of the film Nineteen Eighty-Four

    Orwell's original novel is a contemporary classic, the recent West End theatre production was an amazing adaptation (vimeo.com/96690059), the best thing about this version is John Hurt as Winston Smith. Much like the Harron adaptation of 'American Psycho', there is much to commend, but it is hard to compete with a seminal piece of literature.
