I wish I could watch that. But my poor dialup connection would throw a fit.

But I did read the book many years ago. Wish I still had it.

I have this movie on a disc but have not had the chance to watch it.

What exactly is it about, I mean, like how does it tie in with ATS, conspiracies, or aliens, as it's a movie and not a documentary, right?

Like I said I could find an answer by just watching it, but if someone has already seen it then it'd be far easier for me as I don't have the time atm.

Excellent movie, if it's the one with Richard Burton and John Hurt.

In a nutshell, this is George Orwell's classic futuristic tale of a civilization that has taken a decidedly totalitarian turn. Everyone is a drone of the state, individual thought is pretty much banned, conversations (when they occur) are pure state propaganda, and love is outlawed. A state employee (whose job is rewriting history) has rebellious thoughts and falls in love with a woman. Of course, his every move is monitored by "Big Brother" (this story, incidentally, is where the term Big Brother originated), and he and his lover are turned over to the Ministry of Love for rehabilitation... Which consists of unrelenting torture and brainwashing.

There's no happy ending to the story, so don't get your hopes up. For more of same, see Terry Gilliam's extremely dark comedy "Brazil"... For more of same with a happier ending, see "V for Vendetta"

Here's a bit of trivia that I found eerily ironic. John Hurt, who played the unfortunate state employee Winston Smith in the really great movie adaptation of 1984, also played the part of Adam Sutler in the movie V for Vendetta... Adam Sutler (aka Adam Susan) was the malevolent leader of the ruthless dictatorship that V was trying to bring down.

The irony is that actor John Hurt had the opportunity to play both sides of the futuristic dictator/slave scenario. His portrayal of the horribly tortured Winston Smith in 1984 was riveting, chilling, heartbreaking; his portrayal of Adam Sutler in V for Vendetta was the epitome of "Big Brother," censoring free thought and bellowing ominous commands from his oversized telecom screen.

A really interesting opportunity for a really great actor. I've wondered if John Hurt ever spoke about the two roles in a single interview.

'1984' is a really powerful piece of cinema.

John Hurt is simply magnificent in this film.

Great movie - better book!

Eric Blair's (George Orwell) life story is as fascinating as his masterpiece novel.

I can't wait!
