Solid version of the famous sci-fi novel. Big Brother again rules.
A scary reminder of how easily totalitarian ideas and ideals crop up in societies and take fierce hold.
Better than to be expected adaptation of the book. Not bad, but nothing worthy writing Big Brother about.
Slow moving and hard to follow. Not nearly as good as it should have been. Just go read the book instead.
É bom ver o cinema cumprindo uma velha função que, às vezes, é esquecida: levar o espectador a refletir sobre si mesmo e sobre a sociedade em que vive.
