Every time I watch 1984, I gain new perspectives and a new appreciation for George Orwell's masterpiece. The critics weren't impressed of course as they felt it chopped too much and ended up with a plot line that progressed too slowly. That is what makes this film so great and explains why those too incompetent to be film makers become critics. 1984 cuts through the fluff and developed the salient parts of the storyline. They filmed in Eastman color and the developer processed the negative in a special way that made the visuals muted, drab and made Oceania made to appear even more ugly, and depressing than traditional B/W or color film cold achieve. Darn! Writing this has made me want to re-watch it again this evening which I will do without fail.
Crime & Punishment is well done "second feature" but cannot compete with 1984
Hope this rambling critique proves useful for prospective buyers, but it's almost time now for the main feature and gotta go..
