I am familiar with the film 1984, ironically made in 1984.

It had a favourite actor of mine in it, Richard Burton, he plays Chief O Brien.

I think considering Burton was a wreck by that time, from decades of alcoholism and womanising and his relationship with Elizabeth Taylor wore him down, I think he did a good job, his voice is awesome.

Is his portrayal accurate to how is described in the book?

It is a very interesting story.
