V for Vendetta
V for Vendetta is the most blatantly propagandistic film I've seen in a while, but I loved every minute of it. Well, maybe not every minute -lots of gore in places. I loved seeing Stephen Fry again, as I haven't seen much from him since he was Jeeves in the TV mystery series. Hugo Weaving is another one that gets around, and I'd never have known he was behind that mask without seeing the credits. V for Vendetta is an adaptation of the graphic novel of the same name, but the author of the book was not happy with the film. I'd like to read the novel. Both heavily reference Guy Fawkes and the Gunpowder Plot of 1605. Remember, Remember the 5th of December. But no one does, do they?
