100 Word Review – Animal Farm (1954)

All animals are equal but some animals are more equal than others.

Based on the communist fable from George Orwell in which farmyard animals overthrow their human oppressors and attempt to forge their own path.

Not suitable for children. This isn’t DisneyThe animation from Batchelor and Halas is simultaneously dated and timeless, creating an eerie sense of a warning being shouted across the ages.

It was funded to a large extent by the CIA as anti-communist propaganda. This film is so steeped in history it’s impossible to ignore, and is probably best enjoyed with a generous side of Wiki.
