John Doesn't Get it
While the subject matter of Big Brother is similar to Orwells 1984, this well made offering is creative in its own right, and not a copy of anything. I would say the BBC is a copy of 1984, but not because they try to be - they just ARE it.

Hot Stuff
Although it doesn’t follow Ray Bradbury 1953 book too closely, Francois Truffaut direction is first class, along with two top rate performances by JC. The strong anti-TV emphasis may seem ironic, as you will watch this on TV. George Orwell’s Big Brother TV was compulsory for viewers; Ray Bradbury’s TV watching is actively undertaken by vacuous people like the sheep in Orwell’s Animal Farm. A hot film to voluntarily watch.

Copy-cat
A rip-off of George Orwell's 1984.

Classy
Anything with Julie Christie is classy. Why isn't she Dame Julie yet? She sure deserves it.
