I was a bit worried that V for Vendetta was going to fall into that category, but it was awesome, so I'm not even ashamed. Great cinematography, good acting and (mostly good) writing. I already know that there are a lot of people who will really dislike this movie just on ideological grounds, but I think that's really unfair. Like 1984, Brave New World or any other dystopian literature, I think it's actually got a lot of interesting little pieces of different authoritarian regimes mixed in. One of the interesting parts for me was actually picking out the little pieces of history from different parts of the world, not to mention little pieces of both past literary dystopias (1984, Brave New World) but also past films like Metropolis. I think I may see it again in the theatre just to try and watch more carefully.
So, here is to our (relatively) independent judiciary, independent universities, (mostly) rule of law, and the ability to choose between our favorite rich white guy every four years.
Anyways, I'm interested to hear what other people think.
