1984 product reviews

A powerful adaptation of George Orwell's 1984.

After the Atomic War the world is divided into three states. London, the capital of Oceania, is ruled by a party who has total control over all its citizens. Winston Smith is one of the bureaucrats, rewriting history in one of the departments.

One day he commits the crime of falling in love with Julia. They try to escape Big Brother's listening and viewing devices, but, of course, nobody can really escape...

Having been forced to wade through the book in 5th form English class I wasnt too sure what to expect when I saw this movie. I think I was expecting something dull, boring and dark. Well, the dark bit was right. The movie is dark and provocative, making the intelligent viewer stop and think about where our world is going. The technology is a bit more sophisticated and they dont presently bother with trying to give us directions, but with all the electronic 'toys' we are wrapping around us, we have all the privacy of a lab rat in a glass maze. No matter where we scurry, our cellphones pinpoint their location, and thus ours, almost to the metre, our pda's check our email, our laptops sniff out the nearest wireless access point and start handshaking, all of which nails our position, what we are looking at. When we swipe our eftpos card details of our purchase slide out into the greater network, being infinitely copied, saved to a backup log, burned to a disc somewhere. How is that really all that different to this movie? It make you think about what can happen when our entire lives are under constant scrutiny and someone has the ability to rewrite the stored files. A very thought provoking film with some serious acting talent brought to bear, the movie really did impress me. If you want a movie that actually makes you use the soggy blob of grey stuff in your skull, this is a good one to consider.
