Storyline

Citizen 43275-B isn't too unhappy in his prison cell. Not even when there's a totalitarian society, with powers so great that the thought police can come and get you. No, Citizen 43275-B is happy. He has a mate in his cell: Big Guy, a serious looking Big Brother, showed there on a screen to inflict fear. Whenever he has experienced anything, Big Brother is the first to know. But there is a point of saturation, Big Brother is so sick of it he speaks up. "Stop calling me the Big Guy", he shouts angrily. After the first amazement, Citizen 43275-B sees all kind of new possibilities. Before the revolution he was lonely, after the revolution he had a new friend. A friend that he now can use to play yahtzee with or even sing a song for. Someone will soon face the consequences. Written by Arnoud Tiele (zelva@tiele.nl)

That complainer Winston
26 June 2002 | by (New York, NY) – See all my reviews

What if Winston Smith didn't mind having Big Brother around? What if he was lonely, and just saw BB as someone to talk to, like one might their teddy bear or cat?

This short is clever in knowing more about 1984, Orwell's book, than most do. You can even learn about 1984 while laughing when Big Brother gets fed up with Citizen's mindless pratter about his day.
