Film Review Short Shorts: 1984


1984 (1984) by Michael Radford: 6/10

24 Words or Less: Slow and uninteresting. Orwell’s novel is accurately reflected by the grey colouring of the film, but not by Smith’s (Hurt’s) persistent vacant stare.

Best bit: There’s a long dialogue between Winston Smith and O’Brien which probably explored the important subject matter, but somehow it was so quiet and mumbled I couldn’t hear it.
