3 things about Michael Radford’s NINETEEN EIGHTY-FOUR

Nineteen Eighty-Four [1984]

1. The smell of dead insects and cheap perfume.
2. He cradles Winston in a half-embrace.
3. Teeth, snout, whiskers.

Watch this now.

This viewing was of the version of the film that features only Dominic Muldowney’s score. It is a wonderful score. But I also appreciate the version that uses Eurythmics’ soundtrack, which was the first version I ever watched. It’s kind of interesting that, just like Brazil, this is a film that exists in multiple versions that each has its own merits.
