In this episode of Geek Cinema Society, Brett Stewart, Nicole Davis, David Luzader, and their guest, Matt Stein, delve into ‘Fahrenheit 451,’ a classic film from 1966 based on the famous science fiction novel of the same name by Ray Bradbury. Most of us have read the book at one point or another, either voluntarily or in high school English. The novel has become ingrained in the history of American literature, and it’s often recognized as one of the fundamental building blocks of the science fiction genre. Is ‘Fahrenheit 451’ as controversial now as it was when it was released? Are there historical analogs to be made between Bradbury’s universe and our own? Geek Cinema Society explores all of that and much more in this episode!
For listeners who would like to follow along and treat Geek Cinema Society as a film club of sorts, we will be watching ‘The X Files’ next week! Following that, we’ll be watching ‘Westworld.’
