Movie Friday: Fahrenheit 451

Yet another example of a movie that falls far short of the superior quality of the book, Fahrenheit 451 is still a classic movie that is worth your time to watch.  It's one of those movies that makes you think.  However, before you watch this movie, please read the book.

One of the best things about the movie, in my opinion, is the mid-century design of what the future would look like.  I always enjoy looking at old videos that predict how we will live in the future.  They are sometimes correct, most often wrong.  The more things change, the more they stay the same.

Have a great Friday.

  1. OMG, what a horrible trailer! And I agree, the movie (even with THE BIG STARS OF TODAY) wasn't very good. Definitely not one of Truffaut's better movies. Love that scene with the people all coming out of the little white houses. Happy Friday!
