All Critics (80) | Top Critics (30) | Fresh (26) | Rotten (54)

  • When fake news can affect real elections, there is no better time to consider the lessons of this modernized "Fahrenheit 451."

    November 25, 2019 | Full Review…
  • HBO's Fahrenheit 451 is horrifically beautiful. It feels both divorced from and intrinsically tied to its source material, the 1953 dystopian novel by Ray Bradbury.

    June 28, 2018 | Full Review…
  • The film isn't much of a read, though.

    May 22, 2018 | Rating: C- | Full Review…
  • For all its anger and barefaced rage, this Fahrenheit 451 is a ravishing experience to watch.

    May 21, 2018 | Full Review…
  • Where it truly falls short is in capturing the ways that literature helps us define our humanity and our individuality and life's meaning.

    May 21, 2018
