1984 was not a leap into the future-but a look at the dangers already present-in Orwell's lifetime. The Road to 1984 intertwines vision and reality. It displays the passion and chronicles the career of Orwell--who warned us of what could happen if we stayed on that road--his road to 1948 and ours to 1984.Written by
I agree with the previous reviewer about the expression on Fox's face and the snippets of realism that Eric Blair took from his life in order to give concrete imagery to his writing-perhaps some of this was conjecture, but effective as a device for such a documentary. I also like how clips from film versions of Orwell's work are seamlessly integrated into the narrative; scenes from Animal Farm and 1984, fuse the fiction and non-fiction cleverly. The scene with O'Brien emphasizes the concept that Winston, like Orwell is the last man in Europe...a phrase poignant for many reasons including the fact that originally Orwell had intended this to be a title for this novel.
