Critic Reviews for Animal Farm
It is a serious pity that one can only praise the film version of George Orwell's Animal Farm as a valuable beginning or experiment, and hardly more than that.
If Animal Farm is a notable, rather than an exciting, experiment in cartoon making, it will doubtless influence future work in this field, both in this country and overseas.
An ultimately disappointing adaptation of a classic book.
Comes in an excellent full frame transfer, with an authoritative commentary track by Brian Sibley.
Audience Reviews for Animal Farm
The gist here is simply to enjoy Orwell's popular take on the rise and fall of Communism, which is still in a pretty creative way. The animation, for 1954, ain't bad either, but its the story that carries the efforts entirely.
I prefer this adaptation of Animal Farm to the nineties version, it really works better in animation. If you like the book, check out this movie.
The first full-length animated picture to be released in Britain, this is a fantastically intelligent film. Never putting its political satire as top priority, it is an entertaining movie on any level, but the brilliant portrait of Stalinism is its strongest point.
