Nineteen Eighty-Four, 1984 (Michael Radford)

先看原著後看改編電影, George Orwell的原著出版1949年,就像前作<動物農莊>,本是政治歷史的反映,分別諷刺俄國革命和後來的納粹,但其實Orwell經常強調的極端主義,洗腦,去人性化和白色恐佈的意識,就算放在三百年前法國大革命Reign of Terror,納粹主義,中俄共產政權甚至文化大革命也有相同的精神。原著震撼在於Orwell對於整個社會由領導層,小資到低下階層的心理都剖釋得極為細緻透徹,”Who controls the past controls the future. Who controls the present controls the past”。以戲論戲,編導Michael Radford和主角John Hurt,Richard Burton和Suzanna Hamilton都出色,大量政治symbolic場面,拍得倫敦滄桑無助,最恐佈的是明明不是預言但放在今日香港的情況下竟然有似曾相識之感。
