V for Vendetta

G & I went to see the aforementioned movie this evening. It was great. I haven’t read the graphic novel (yet) but found it very enjoyable. There won’t be any spoilers in the review.

I did find the totalitarian government in the movie very appropriate given current events. The funny part is that the GN predated any current events by a long bit. This is not a new theme in literature and won’t be absent in the future I’m sure. The funny bit is that John Hurt played the Supreme Chancellor, even though he played Winston, the protagonist, in 1984.

Go and see it. I think you’ll enjoy it.
