If you've ever gone to high school it is likey you had to read a George Orwell store. This is the one I read in addition to Animal Farm.
this is a dark film with moment that look scary much like today with the government and companies watching our every move. The store if you don;t know it is about Big Brother, the all seeing the all knowing powers that be. Every move is watched, ever word is heard, everything you do is recorded and information is controlled ... sound familier? John Hurt does a fine job in this film, and worth adding to any collection. I will run on and on about it as I'm sure you know the story. 9/10 on the film the extras on the disc at lacking and the overall quality is fair as this is a little older DVD release, I hope to see a deluxe edition remastered and tons of extras in the future as this book was so profitic in it's vision of the future.
