  1. Renton47's rating of the film Fahrenheit 451

    Cheeky, far from the fascist nightmare of 1984, 451 is at least equally concerned with the faux liberation promised to those who think they've escaped Plato's cave. I will assume that being a cinephile Truffaut saw the dilemma inherent in those who claim authorship of their life through the texts of others. It is a stylised oddity, optimistic in its inevitable revolutions but convinced of their worthlessness.

  2. Marach Adipalin's rating of the film Fahrenheit 451

    Interesting... But just an average film.

  4. Dan Kenneth Gigernes's rating of the film Fahrenheit 451

    What happens to the world when people stops reading, thinking and just believe what they see on T.V. (and internet) and only follow the government? The parallels with real life regimes are too close for comfort which also was the point of the book by legend Ray Bradbury. It is sadly Francois Truffaut's only English-speaking film, but he deliver a wonderful novel to life here. Julie Christie is great in a dual-role.

  5. DenoResandono's rating of the film Fahrenheit 451

    FAHRENHEIT 451 is an effort from director Francois Truffaut to reach a mainstream audience & make a blockbuster movie. It's also his first and only English-language movie. Since I haven't read the novel yet, I just heard that FAHRENHEIT 451 is lighter than the novel. But I still feel that FAHRENHEIT 451 is a decent movie. It succeed to capture the horror of the dystopian future. FAHRENHEIT 451 is very entertaining...

  6. 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.

  7. LETTERBOXD.COM/XESCIE'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

  10. 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.

  11. LauraPalmer's rating of the film Fahrenheit 451

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

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

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

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

    Oskar Werner has a rather strange accent in this.

  17. Aardsy's rating of the film Fahrenheit 451

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

  19. 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 (...)

  22. 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.

  23. 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.
