HOW TO SURVIVE A DYSTOPIA

 

Oceania is at war with Eurasia; Big Brother watches from every wall. Loudspeakers blare party propaganda on every street. It's 1984 in a London where Winston Smith (John Hurt) works rewriting old newspaper stories to fit the latest corrected truth. When a fellow worker, Julia (Suzanna Hamilton) passes him a secret note with the words 'I love you' they begin a dangerous, illicit relationship, defying the party and Big Brother with their love. Sniffing around suspiciously is the brutally cynical O'Brien (Richard Burton) from the inner party...And the Thought Police are everywhere.

A chilling vision of political correctness taken to its ultimate, bleak conclusion based on George Orwell's 1948 novel, this is Michael Radford's brilliant evocation of a world in which love is illegal, Big Brother is omnipresent and newspeak is eradicating the meaning of words. "War is peace / freedom is slavery / ignorance is strength..." blares the ever-audible loudspeaker system throughout the land. Doublethink is the new principle.--Urban Cinefile
