Audience Reviews for 1984

  • Sep 10, 2013
    Gosh this is bad, for those of you that have not read the book the film may be acceptable, but if you have then you would notice how degenerated this version is. The film completely tossed the book aside and made up it's own Hollywood-ized version, fat old Winston, blond Julia,silly telescreen, melodramatic plot. The worst part was that they changed the ending to make the film seem like a romance movie. It toned down a lot of the torture and key themes in the film, the names were changed, the details were changed, it doesn't even talk have a subtext of anti communism anymore. Please, read the book before watching this film. The mise en scene was good though, it really matched the description in the book.

    I liked the 1984 remake by Michael Radford A LOT more than this one, in particular the casting could have been done better. Still, this one came first.

    A film that is very much of it's time, but somehow manages to stay current and important with each generation. It's well made, believable and affecting; choosing not to blame Communism (as a lot of western films of the 50s did), or the supposed democracy of the west, which is very refreshing. Something I'd recommend everyone to watch.
