Episode 68: Nineteen Eighty-Four
From the age of Big Brother, from the age of podcasting... greetings. Bob 'Moviebob' Chipman joins us again as we engage in thoughtcrimes galore while discussing the film adaptation of 1984, directed that same year by Michael Radford. Grab yourself some Victory Gin and listen in as we explore the changing political contexts of Orwell's novel, comment on Radford's visual style for the movie, and note the controversy over the film's music score. Warning: Contains explicit language, spoilers and John Hurt / William Hurt confusion.
