Since these posts are relatively old, maybe there could have been a DVD or VHS release in the meantime. I'm a 1984 addict and if anyone has heard stg about it, could he please let me know. Serious 61, does your offer still hold?. If the answer is yes, I'm interested.

I collect everything linked with dystopia, books, of course, but also movies. If you have some suggestions, it would be very helpful

And I would be very grateful.

It goes without saying that 1984 is way above the others dystopia novels (Brave New World, We, Farenheit 451 etc..) in my opinion, but I'll sturdily

stand by Orwell 'til my last breath
