Last night I dreamed I was watching a film adaptation of 1984, which claimed to go back to Orwell's "original vision" for the story. The scathing political satire and lengthy torture scenes were omitted (except for the rat-mask bit, which was curiously still present). The film instead was a wacky romantic comedy about Winston, played as a neurotic stammerer in the mold of Woody Allen, trying to woo Julia away from the Junior Anti-Sex League. But her big brother Gary would have none of it! Hilarity ensued.

Do you read Neal Pollack's "The Maelstrom"? He and his selected panel of experts answer all George Orwell questions.

I love The Maelstrom -- perhaps I should rewrite the post in the form of a question and let Andy and Hitch have a whack at it.

Definitely, they could branch out into dream interpretation.
