“Remember, remember, the Fifth of November
Gunpowder treason and plot
I see no reason why gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot“
Many movies will come and go, but none of them can be compared to the revelation of V for Vendetta. The limited comic book series created by Alan Moore and David Lloyd reached the world with this film, and since then, the movie has become a symbol of the fight against tyranny worldwide. I can proudly say the radical notions of V (Hugo Weaving) changed my perceptions about the world permanently, and I am liberated from my own chains.
Hugo Weaving delivered the greatest dialogue delivery ever in the history of cinema. His diction and dialect were so pristine and cogent that he compelled me to think about the oppression of the commoners. Guy Fawkes stood against an evil monarchy, V became the manifestation of that bulletproof idea.
V for Vendetta is a strong voice against the apathy of our leaders towards the public. Their regressive ideas enforced with clinical intelligence to cause mass hysteria is the method of politicians to engage voters. V introduces the notion of anarchy among the people because, in anarchy, you are both the creator and destroyer, you are the leader and the follower.
Natalie Portman brought in the soul of a survivor with Evey. The character arc of Evey was induced with bravery and growth like a seed turning into a fruitful tree. It took some guts to get her head shaven in front of a cam, that’s the level of dedication of Natalie Portman. If you haven’t seen the movie yet, today is the perfect day to watch the movie, I know I will.
