Eventually the main Cleric realises what the government is trying to do when he doesn't take the chemical , he then becomes the power to overthrow the government . This character reminds me of Winston, he seems the only one walking around knowing that something is wrong with the government . Although Julia admits that something is not right with the way they live , she is not interested in changing it , she is quite happy avoiding getting caught .

Cleric's who work for the government , this is another image of how the thought police would be dressed .
The world of equilibrium is ruled by t.v screens , every one is dressed in cold tones , even the sunlight doesn't look warm . This almost looks like a video game , where you control people .
This could be another form of research looking at the images of freeze framed video games .
