    One of the greatest movies I have seen!!!

    This was a great movie!! I will admit I was a little skeptical at the beginning of the movie, but it got really interesting for me after Montag's wife discovered the books. I would recommend this movie to everybody!! (P.S., It would also help if you read the book too!!)

    I remember seeing this film about 30 years ago as an adolescent and it felt quite futuristc. Upon recent viewing (three times in one weekend) i have a completely different reading of it. It has a haunting sort of schizophrenia about it. Between future and past, stylization and sentimentality. To me it is an exploration of what alfred hitchcock called ''pure cinema.'' although it may not be quite as successful in this regard as some of his works, it borrows the idea of piictures and images (including a dream sequence similar to hitcock's vertigo dream) conveying messages far beyond words. This is yet another thematic contradiction in a movie that portrays books and the written word as a major character in the film. Books are shown in endless variation curling up and looking almost human as the burn. The dialogue seems purposely taut and reserved perhaps to reinforce the ''empty headedness'' of everyone except julie christy's (in a dual role) literate alter ego from montag's wife. One sequence involving studio bound jet packers in a chase of the fugitiive montag is regrettable but the famous final sequence where people recite books from memory as they traverse the idyllic snowy woods transforms this film into a hopeful poem for humanity.
