1984

After The Atomic War the world is divided into three states. London is the capital of Oceania, 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. Together they try to escape Big Brother's listening and viewing devices, but, of course, nobody can really escape... "1984" is probably one of the most, if not the most, masterful transitions from book to movie ever made. In other words, director Michael Radford was faithfull, in every sense of the word, to his source material and the viewer can enjoy an accurate visualisation of both Orwell's aisthetic for a post-apocalyptic world and his obvious political criticism and timely argumentation about modern totallitarian and "democratic" regimes
