Orwell Rolls in His Grave ★ 2003

Wordy talking-head dominated movie parallels George Orwell's Big Brother totalitarianism in “1984” with the current relationship of U.S. media and government. Interviews conducted in dull settings and comically ominous soundtrack music detract from the main objective. Basically a poor rehashing of other Republication-bashing docs like “Fahrenheit 9/11,” “The Corporation,” and “Outfoxed.” 95m/C DVD. D: Robert Kane Pappas; W: Robert Kane Pappas, Tom Blackburn; C: Robert Kane Pappas, Alan Hostetter; M: Eric Wood.
