Brave New World: Amusing Ourselves to Death

Top Dystopian Movies of All Time

I stumbled upon this article the other day, and just had to share it. It's a list compiled of the most popular dystopian movies. I don't necessarily agree with their definition of dystopia, but this was still interesting enough to share. Brave New World is not even on the list, because the only movies that have been made of the book have terrible reviews. It seems to me like it's one of those books that never really works that well as a film.

I'd love to do an assignment with Brave New World where we compare Huxley's warnings with another dystopian vision....we'll see if we have time.
