Industry Reviews
"...[Radford] has probably made as fine an adaptation as possible....Hurt's performance...is the film's center of gravity..."

"John Hurt is perfect....The revelation is Richard Burton..."
Uncut - Damien Love (10/01/2004)

"You couldn't ask for a better Winston Smith than Hurt....You couldn't ask for a more faithful and effective adaptation of the George Orwell classic, either."
