V for Vendetta is the best movie ever.


Seriously.
I adore this movie. V for Vendetta, based on the eighties graphic novel written by Alan Moore and illustrated primarily by David Lloyd is a post apocalyptic dystopian view of London after a huge global war has ravaged the planet and given rise to a facist government.
The movie, while in this bloggers opinion is only a minor departure from the graphic novel, does not set well with Englishman Moore, as he believes that the film has twisted his premise to be a not-so-subtle reflection of the Bush administration.
Indeed it has, but it still works and serves it's purpose shockingly well. The parallels between this story and what is currently manifesting in this country will chill your blood and serve, through new the opiate of the masses known as entertainment, (or edutainment, if you prefer), to open the viewer's eyes to the creeping hand of facism all around them.
From the government engineering a crisis in order to enable a conservative leader, convinced he's doing God's work and with no regard for political process, to take control, to the various scenes of the populace being spied on, and to boot, a very Cheney-like VP named "Creedy", the horrifyingly clear picture of what this country could become is crystal clear.
Throw in a host of brilliant performances, including the ever stunningly beautiful Natalie portman as Evey Hammond, Hugo Weaving as the Fawlksian "V" behind the mask and the maniacally brilliant John Hurt as High Chancellor Adam Sutler and you've got ninety minutes of entertainment whose message may just keep you up at night after you see it.
But most assuredley you will find yourself, as this voracious and vocal veteran of the venal vein of volitile cinema does, quoting fondly in rememberance of Guy Fawlkes,.....
Remember, remember the fifth of November,
The gunpowder treason and plot.
I know of no reason the gunpowder treason,
should ever be forgot.
V for Vendetta is a must see.

Oddly enough I just downloaded "Faith and Treason: The Gunpowder Plot" off Audible.com
(but that is not so much a coincidence as it is my being a giant nerd...)

It's interesting in that, like the movie and, say, NOW... Lord Cecil (key advisor to James I, and if you will 'VP') knew about the plot and allowed it to continue (almost to fruition) in order to create a crisis and gain further control over the govenment.

Dun dun dun...

Seriously though, that movie was awsome.

Jenn,.....

You crack me up, Kluska!

As a fellow afficianado of "the costume set" I think you will be delighted to know that I am in the process of collecting the pieces for a valorous and vexing "V" costume that should prove to be a vivacious valentine to the character and serve to vindicate my vigorous and varied pursuit of props!

Wow! THAT was SUPER GEEKY and I am more than a little ashamed.

How vulgar and verbose! ;)

If you guys were to some how meld yourselves together and take over the world, the results would be terrifying. Think about it....a Siamese Klooskarr-Bishop. No prop ever again defiled or put in the 'prop house', no yard of 18th Century fabric ever folded or frayed. The world a set, and I....probably the creepy mental dude hiding behind the lit backdrop.
I love you guys.

Would Jenn and I combine like the Skeksis and the Mystics at the end of The Dark Crystal?

But only after Jen,(the Gelfling, not the Kluska), healed it with the shard?

That would be cool.

BTW,....fun fact. Gelfling females have wings, but the males do not.

What I find most funny about your comment, and many other POV's I have read, is that people say this movie is a comparison to the Bush administration and a look at what could actual happen to this country with conservatives in power.

The funny part is that if you look at nearly every Fascist/Dictatorship Government it has arisen out of liberalism/socialism.

Russia - Communist (liberal)
Cuba - Communist (liberal)
Nazi Germany - Socialist Dictatorship (liberal)
Venezuela - "hidden" Socialist Dictatorship (liberal)
North Korea - Socialist Dictatorship (liberal)

This movie was fucking dog shit.

There is no subtlety to any of it, and it's a complete bastardization of Moore's original work.

After this schlock and Matrix 3 the W bros need to be dragged out in the streets and hung, this is a movie for idiot hipsters who need politics to be chewed and regurgitated for them.

One of my absolute most hated movies
