SOMETHING WICKED THIS WAY COMES
1983, Disney, 95 min, USA, Dir: Jack Clayton

A strange carnival comes to a small town, bringing with it Mr. Dark (Jonathan Pryce), a sinister impresario who bewitches many of the town’s inhabitants with apparent answers to their dreams. Or is it their nightmares? Ray Bradbury adapted the screenplay from his novel.


FAHRENHEIT 451
1966, Universal, 112 min, UK, Dir: François Truffaut

François Truffaut adapts the Ray Bradbury classic with his signature fresh spontaneity and visual ingenuity. Firefighter Guy Montag (Oskar Werner, JULES AND JIM) has the ugly duty of burning books in his dystopian, fearmongering society of the future. When he meets and falls in love with rebellious book hoarder Clarisse (Julie Christie) and is introduced to the brilliance of the confiscated material, Guy begins to question his world’s dictates and must choose to either safely comply or run away - which could bring lethal consequences.
