  1. Richmond Hill's rating of the film Fahrenheit 451

    A rather cartoonish interpretation which thankfully eschews the heavier pitfalls of pro-free thought and intellectualism but spends too much of its time in distracted - often distracting - gimmickry and experimentation of material form. It fitfully works and has some effective sequences and modes, but whether Truffaut was simpatico with the story remains unclear.

  2. ‏ㅤ's rating of the film Fahrenheit 451

    "I've wanted to redo Fahrenheit 451 ever since it came out in 1966, because Truffaut left out so much from the novel. I sat bolt upright when I was told that Warner Brothers wanted to make the new version with Mel Gibson" — Ray Bradbury, Playboy May 1996

  5. Ethan's rating of the film Fahrenheit 451

    Truffaut brings Ray Bradbury's literary classic to vibrant life in this brilliant screen adaptation that perfectly captures the nightmarish atmosphere of the source material.

    Rewatched and re-loved. "Burn them to ashes and then burn the ashes..."

  10. Anand Kani's rating of the film Fahrenheit 451

    There couldn't have been a more naive and simplistic rendition of the book!

  11. James Mackin's rating of the film Fahrenheit 451

    Oskar Werner has a rather strange accent in this.

  12. Aardsy's rating of the film Fahrenheit 451

    Truffaut tries to be Hitchcock, but it doesn't work.

  14. cinegeek.de's rating of the film Fahrenheit 451

    (...) Truffaut führt uns in eine Art Kommune in den Wald, in dem die Büchermenschen leben und die grossen Klassiker auswendig lernen. Man würde sie eben mündlich weitergeben. Die Beschäftigung wirkt allerdings sinnlos, da jeder in dieser Kommune nur liest und auswendig lernt. Gespräche über das Gelesene finden nicht statt (...)

  17. Marco Izner's rating of the film Fahrenheit 451

    Tendente alle quattro stelle. Purtroppo non ce la faccio a non fare il confronto col romanzo; ma è inutile stare qui a dire quanto Truffaut abbia reso la storia con straordinaria poesia e personalità; cambiando qualcosa qua e là, ma niente che stravolga lo spirito di Bradbury. Non tra i suoi lavori migliori, ma è comunque un film da stra-vedere.

  18. Johnny Mislow's rating of the film Fahrenheit 451

    Very weak movie from Truffaut. Painful to see thousands and thousands of books I am haching to read just being burned for the sake of cinema.

    kitabı çok daha güzel ama yinede başarılı

  22. ASHES IN THE HOURGLASS's rating of the film Fahrenheit 451

    It's not awful but it was just really uninvolving. My biggest problem is that Truffaut's love for Hitchcock, specifically Vertigo, is all over this film, to the point of making me want to watch that instead. From the theme of memory, the similar music by Bernard Hermann, the casting of an actress in two roles, the dream sequence, all these things remind me too much of Hitchcock's masterpiece. It lacks an identity.

  23. Jonathan Smith's rating of the film Fahrenheit 451

    5 Stars may be a tad generous, but the concept is so fascinating I can't help but cave into my fetish for dystopias & give it full marks. The film itself could be more unsettling and oppressive in the world it creates. Dystopian it may be, but its hardly the grim oddness of Clockwork Orange or 1984. Regardless, the book burning tale is prescient & compelling story that thrives through Werner's leading performance.

  24. Mehmet Ali Karar's rating of the film Fahrenheit 451

    fahrenheit 451 in roman ve çizgi roman haricinde daha hareketli ve aksiyon tadında bir yapım olmasını dilerdim ama olay sadece anlatımla kalmış.
