Film 4

Just watching "Equilibrium" on TV. It's one of those 1984 type movies. 

Wiki says :
In a futuristic world, a strict regime has eliminated war by suppressing emotions. Books, art and music are strictly forbidden, and feeling is a crime punishable by death. Grammaton Cleric John Preston, who has been trained to enforce the strict laws of the new regime, is a top ranking government agent responsible for destroying those who resist the rules. When he misses a dose of Prozium, a mind-altering drug that hinders emotion, Preston suddenly becomes the only person capable of overthrowing it.
Sounds like Labour were in charge!

  4. Dunno, its a good film though. I have seen it a few times before and think I might order a copy from ebay. Its quite prolific in terms of what is happening as regards to state control. Another good one is "Children of Men".
