Fahrenheit 451


In the future, most books have been banned and the main objective of firemen is to find and burn themā€¦ but one of the regimeā€™s loyal men (Michael B. Jordan) learns that heā€™s been lied to. FranƧois Truffaut made a watchable adaptation of Ray Bradburyā€™s classic novel in 1966; this one was also directed by a man of merit, but itā€™s a mediocre experience. The filmā€™s design of a future dictatorship cleverly shows how social media is used by the regime, but the film is largely your run-of-the-mill dystopia. Not much tension, but the cast is worth a look, with Jordan as the obedient servant and Michael Shannon as his intelligent, fanatical mentor.Ā
