I agree it's probably the best film ever. The core asset is the story, the struggle between honor and greed, between duty and pleasure, between one's own happiness and the fate of the world. Everything else: the fine actors, the setting, the comic relief, all add whipped cream to the experience.

It's not the authoritarian and cruel part that makes 1984 so memorable. After all, like you said, Colin, there's a long list of autocratic, authoritarian and cruel empires/societies/governments throughout history. It's the absurdity of it, particularly how language is used as a tool of repression. That's how the English language got the terms Big Brother, doublethink, Newspeak, thoughtcrime, etc (as part of the "Orwellian" adjective).

I remember a lot of my dreams and I don't sleep well. I also have all the senses in my dreams, which can be unpleasant at times. And there are times I am aware I am dreaming and force myself to wake up if the dream is irksome.
