Utopia and Dystopia: Books and Films

Post by Admin on Tue Sep 15, 2015 3:13 am

The following is a list of books and films that deal with themes of utopia or dystopia. Feel free to check them out and add your thoughts!

Films:
"Alphaville" by Jean-Luc Godard
"Farenheit 451" by François Truffaut
"A Clockwork Orange" by Stanley Kubrick
"Metropolis" by Fritz Lang

Books:
"Brave New Word" by Aldous Huxley
"1984" by George Orwell
"We" by Yevgeny Zamyatin
"Bend Sinister" by Vladimir Nabokov
"Walden" by Henry David Thoreau
"Selected Writings" by Charles Fourier

It seems like there are many more books and films about terrible societies than there are about beautiful ones. Why do you think authors and filmmakers might find dystopia a richer subject than utopia?
