1984

Michael Radford
Director

Brilliant adaptation of Orwell's bleak prediction for our future. Hurt, never better, REALLY looks hurt. Richard Burton delivers possibly his finest ever screen performance (which was to be his last). Bleak, to say the least, but compelling. Did Orwell ever say "I told you so"?
