Bulletproof Ideas

V for Vendetta[Dave/Scott]
Recommended Viewing: V for Vendetta Trailer.

I really liked this movie. It’s not my favorite, but it’s a reminder of how freedom is to society. It’s sad that this movie will be most likely misinterpreted on the basis of a viewer’s political bent. Viewers leaning towards the left in the political spectrum will likely draw “similarities” between the radically conservative administration depicted in the movie to the current Bush administration (the original graphic novel was loosely based on the Thatcher administration, actually), while those leaning towards the right might see this as a glorification of a terrorist. I saw this movie as thoughtful and entertaining, as well as being the best adaptation of Alan Moore’s work to film. Perhaps this movie might interest viewers into looking into other Vertigo (an imprint of DC comics leaning to more mature or adult works) publications such as 100 Bullets, Ex Machina, or Y: The Last Man.
“Beneath this mask there is more than flesh. There is an idea, Mr. Creedy, and ideas are bulletproof.”
