This is the best film of George Orwell's very best novel 1984. Sticks wonderfully well to the dystopian future of the world. A world which is not too far away l think. John Hurt is the perfect person to portray Winston Smith, the main character in this disturbing view of a world where the past is forever being altered by the ruling party to fix the present situation. Where war is kept alive deliberately to keep the peace, the 'doublethink' philosophy that war is peace. I know that there is at least one other film of 1984 around but this version, with John Hurt and Richard Burton, is the best!

Well worth a look!
Very good interpretation of book. Excellent actors including John Hurt and Richard Burton. Recommended
Very good film. I remember it when it first came out I wonder what a remake would look like - definitely skewed as to be politically correct.
A government that spies on us and tries to control our lives? This a documentary...right? When the people fear the government you have tyranny...when the government fears the people you have liberation.
A CLASSIC FILM ONE OF THE BEST EVER WATCHED IT MANY YEARS AGO AND FORGOT HOW GOOD IT WAS MAKES YOU THINK ABOUT WHAT A VERY DIFFERENT PLACE THE WORLD COULD BE
