Intrigued by its interesting premise and 80% approval ratings from the usually reliable Rotten Tomatoes, I watched the movie 1984. While the milieu is perfect, the story is not. I was hoping maybe after all the series of boring scenes, there will be some sort of astonishing or mind fuck ending. Or at least something to feel or think about. But there’s none.
A pathetic attempt of ending it poetically is also a failure. At least to this viewer’s perspective. It might do well for old school-of-thought and technical film critics but for the casual movie enthusiasts, it is a failure.
For a boring film, the only good thing it provided was a good sleep after watching it.
