  1984 (film) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
1984 (sometimes Nineteen Eighty-Four) is a British film based upon the George Orwell novel Nineteen Eighty-Four, released in the eponymous year in the United Kingdom, although not until 1985 in the United States.
Eurythmics' fourth album 1984 (For the Love of Big Brother) was produced as a soundtrack to the film, and includes the track "Sexcrime" which was released as a single.
Michael Radford expressed discontent with the music Eurythmics made for the film, which resulted in an alteration of the score for the DVD release: only one track from the album is used for the DVD, over the closing credits; however, Annie Lennox made a cameo in the film.

 Filmtracks: Nineteen Eighty-Four (Dominic Muldowney)
The score, which had promised to greatly enhance the film after its use in the theatrical trailers, ultimately became the largest controversy surrounding the film.
Needless to say, the inconsistency this caused in the music for the film was a substantial reason for the audiences' cold response to the film.
The highlight of the album is the main title suite that was the initial demo composed for the film by Muldowney; he includes an interesting 1940s touch at the end (Perhaps a tribute to the time when the story was written?).

 1984 - Feature film
1984 is the year in which it happens.
Nobody really paid any attention to the fact and I kept saying to people 'Look, it's a great selling point', you know, that it was actually made during the exact period in which it was set, month for month, and eventually they cottoned on to that.
The great thing for me about this film is not just having released the film in 1984, but that we actually created our own 1984 while that year was going on.

Julia Migenes-Johnson is the most wanton, flirtatious, outright outrageously sexual Carmen I have ever seen, or listened to, in Francesco Rosi's lush 1984 film adaptation of Georges Bizet's opera, "Carmen," filmed on location in Andalusia.
The casting of the fiery femme fatale is essential to the success of the opera, because the diva must be able to project femininity, defiance and sensuality, as well as a phenomenal mezzo-soprano voice in order to be believable.
The subtitles (the film is in French) are useful and not intrusive on the DVD version.

Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-Four was intended as a bleak commentary on life in 1948, the year in which it was written.
Director Radford's decision to recreate the post-war austerity of the 40s rather than forge a brave new world of his own means much of the film is rather anachronistic.
Contravening the laws of Oceania he begins a secret relationship with Julia (Hamilton), which brings him into contact with a band of rebels led by O'Brien (Burton in his final film role).
