Peter Fenzel, Mark Lee, and Matthew Wrather try to make sense of the frankly incoherent—in both project and tone—film The Circle, an adaptation of Dave Eggers’s satirical novel of the same name.
The Overthinking It Book Club: George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four
The Overthinking It Book Club returns with a look at George Orwell’s classic novel of authoritarianism and political dystopia, Nineteen Eighty-Four. In four episodes of downloadable audio, the OTI crew dives deep into the strangely familiar world of the story and follows our everyman hero Winston as he navigates the murky waters of loyalty, individuality, doublethink, and thought crime. It’s the perfect counterpart—or corrective to—The Circle.
